This meeting addressed the rapid advances in scientific technologies and explored whether the arts, and more specifically installation related work, can supply a critical commentary on developments in biotechnology.


This meeting aims to address issues such as: What are the effects of scientific and historical documentation and research on the fine arts? Can art only be a parasite in relation to science? Can artists avoid the impact of science/technology on their work and Should they? Why is science an expanding area within art practice? How does art stand in relation to the moral and political consequences of science?
