“Fermenting Futures” and “The BioArchaeology of Yeast” installation view at ZKM

The exhibition presents contemporary approaches of artists who, on the one hand, continue the lines of research of the preceding renaissances and, on the other, open up new fields of research. It also features convincing parallel research or elective affinities between science and art. The focus is on a new culture of tools. It provides insights into artistic laboratory situations and artistic-scientific collaborations that open up a shared multidisciplinary field of knowledge for the 21st century — from biochemistry to genetic engineering and information design to neuroscience and unconventional computing.
