Context, care, control and violence in biological art and design

Description:
ACHTUNG: Diese Kompakwoche wird auf englisch stattfinden!
A mix of hands-on and theory, this workshop will critically examine the relationship to life forms and the concept of life, as it pertain to biological art and design. We will explore the apparatuses involved in de and re contextualisation of life for human and non-human desires through care, control and violence. The idea of outsourcing many functions of biological bodies to technology is one aspect that will be addressed in this workshop as we will unpack some projects developed at SymbioticA and elsewhere and encourage participants to develop contestable prototypes using living systems.
