Music, literature, fine arts, performing arts or digital arts: With wide-ranging programs, we forge ties to innovation and technology, politics, history and society. All members of the TUM community − and friends of TUM − are invited to take part: expand your horizons and embrace new ways of thinking.

Nobel Heroes: Encounters with Nobel Laureates and their stories

We are celebrating the founding of the Center for Culture and Arts with the photo exhibition "Nobel Heroes". Since 2000, photographer Peter Badge has been portraying all living Nobel Laureates in a joint project with the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings Foundation. Now the exhibition is coming to TUM, providing insights into and encounters with the people who "brought the greatest benefit to mankind", as Alfred Nobel put it in his will.
