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).
