BioLab is a design space for vibrant futures. We question the status quo of biotechnological situations of tension and provide new stimuli from the perspectives of design and art. Using design approaches, we research hidden life. We view living manufacturing methods, renewable materials, adaptive and resilient products and systems as future-orientated fields that must be examined and explored.
Through professional instruction, in BioLab students gain access to biotechnological methods and learn to design diverse futures with living (micro)organisms and their products. A culture of openness and transparency makes it possible to objectively discuss and explore the borders between nature, culture, and technology. Ethical questions on the biotechnological future are one focal area of discourse and public dialogue.
