The installation, titled «In Vivo-In Vitro», features the work of the following artists:
Critical Art Ensemble (CAE) | Eduardo Kac | Stelarc | Joe Davis | Karl Sims | Eva Sutton | Daniel Lee | Susan Alexjander | Polona Tratnik
An interdisciplinary meeting, pondering on “BIOETHICS, BIOTERRORISM, AND MEDIA” will take place at the Athens Fine Arts School Theatre on February the 24th, on 12 at noon.
The main concept for the “IN VIVO IN VITRO” event is to detect Bio Art’s social, political, aesthetic and interdisciplinary dimensions. This new kind of osmosis between Art, Science and Life, may happen either using biotechnology, or digital technology, or both, through bio-tech installations, digital environments, performances and online projects.
