This is a French translation from the original article in German about our yearly award ceremony in Freiburg, Germany. Science meets art! The International Academy of Sciences, Humanities, and Arts organizes a successful concert for the second time. With the motto "Art opens the mind and heart," the deputy chairman of IASHA e. V. Prof. dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Roland Mertelsmann opens the successful symbiosis of music, poetry and scientific talent development. The event was hosted by IASHA e.V. and Marcel Thimm, CEO of Sparkasse Freiburg.

( DOI: 10.17160/josha.5.9.488) UNIVERSAL ACCESS to knowledge is a fundamental principle of science and humanities. Today, however, publications of science and humanities are locked behind high paywalls and non-transparent selection procedures. In the efforts to resolve the misery, a first important milestone was the “Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities” of 2003. This year, a second milestone was reached: Eleven European research funding institutions have committed to requiring from 2020 on that all results from research funded by these institutions are published immediately in compliant Open Access journals or platforms.
The JOSHA Demetrios Project: Monographs, Textbooks and Papers in any Language as “Books as Open Online Content (BOOC)” With this issue, JOSHA is starting a new project, the Demetrios Project. We chose Demetrios of Phaleron, a student of Theophrastus and most probably of Aristotle, as the name patron of our project. Demetrios was instrumental in establishing the ancient Library of Alexandria, probably the largest and most significant library of the ancient world covering all aspects of Science, Humanities and the Arts in many different languages. It is our objective to open up JOSHA as a universally accessible, open access library to all languages and countries. JOSHA will focus initially on publishing and provide open-access to textbooks in any field of Science, Humanities and the Arts, to students and readers worldwide. JOSHA will publish textbooks in any language after appropriate peer review by experts in the field knowledgeable of the respective language.
ALBANE ROUX Née 1972, vit et travaille en Gironde sur le bassin d'Arcachon Saisie par les dialogues et résonances entre les couleurs depuis l'enfance, il y a 15 ans lorsque j'ai commencé à peindre, c'est sur des photographies argentiques anciennes, sur des mariés, des poilus, des communiantes. La richesse des textures du noir au blanc, l'histoire que j'imaginais de ces gens ordinaires, « leurs vies minuscules », m'ont amené à voiler ces images d'une laitance blanche à base de colle de peau de lapin et de les faire disparaître encore un peu plus, en les couvrant de goudron, noir. Puis comme pour éviter l'oubli par grattage, frottement, incompatibilité et jeux de matière resurgissaient un morceau de soulier verni, une main, un bouquet, une oreille, un pan de tissus. Aujourd'hui afin que les gestes soient plus amples, les supports ont changé. Je recrée souvent sur la toile, en point de départ ce duel des noirs et des blancs où la couleur s’immisce.
