Gene Cultures at MIT Museum

Biotechnology from the Blue Flower is on show at the new MIT Museum in Cambridge, USA as part of “Gene Cultures” from 2nd October 2022 until 2024.

As the pace of technological advances in the field of genetic discovery quickens, questions arise.

Who decides how and when transformative new biotechnologies will be used? What questions do we need to ask before making decisions leading to irrevocable results?

Join the conversation as you explore dramatic breakthroughs in genetic technologies and engage with artworks—witty, provocative, absurd, and profound—that prompt us to consider our future – now.
