3/4: BIOMATTERS artistic research program 2017/2018

With the new biotechnologies such as cloning, tissue engineering, DNA editing and the research on microbiome our old understanding of what is life and living bodies, nature and culture have stopped having any fixed meaning and relevance. Artists known as bioartists and biodesigners have begun to use living matter as a form of visual speculation but also hands-on manipulation, actively participating in shaping an understanding of what life is and what living bodies might be and do. In other words, rather than representing the reality, bioartists invent a reality. AKI BIO MATTERs artistic research program follows bioart’s movement to learn how to think and create when your medium is alive.
