You are cordially invited to the opening of the exhibition,"Agar! Agar!" 
The exhibition is a result of the course on bioart which was offered at 
the Bauhaus University Weimar in winter semester 2015/6.

Opening reception Saturday 9 April 2016, 19:00.
@Schillerpalais, Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin

The Bio art course was designed as an introduction to work with live 
tissues, bacteria, mycelium, plants and other organisms. During the 
theoretical part we have discussed artworks in relation to Bio art, 
tried to overview them within the up to date discourses ranging from 
interspecies collaboration to plant communication to symbiotic 
relationships to transgenic organisms. In addition we have been working 
with non-living systems demonstrating life-like processes like crystal 
growing and automata patterns. Work in the biolab focused on the 
analysis of living systems (acetobacter, physarum, yeasts, euglena, 
etc.) and their relations to habitat. Living and non-living systems have 
been considered while sensing and recording their shifts with the help 
of microscopes and cameras, analyzing and interacting with them while 
bridging with electronics and computers, and sharing and documenting 
experiments online and on paper.

The exhibition is kindly supported by the Bauhaus University Weimar and 
its Media Environments chair (Prof. Ursula Damm).
