AESTHETICS get SYNTHETIC: 1ST KLAS WORKSHOP
Max-Planck-Campus, Wissenschaftspark Potsdam-Golm, Am Mühlenberg 1, 14476 Potsdam
Max-Planck-Institute für Kolloid- und Grenzflächenforschung und Molekulare Pflanzenphysiologie
We are proud to announce the “AESTHETICS get SYNTHETIC” workshop that will take place in the Main hall of the Max Planck Campus in Potsdam-Golm the afternoon of Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th of November 2017.This workshop is an opportunity to bring together scholars and practitioners to jointly discuss and reflect on contents, approaches and methodologies that draw the link between synthetic biology and artistic research and how those can synergically interact by mutually interrogating and reconsidering their methodologies and modes of operation in an Artist in Residence program like KLAS. In this workshop we are particularly interested in discussions and perspectives that explore how different institutions, organizations and interest groups with relevant expertise and knowledge of research, innovation and education address contemporary challenges of future developments in and beyond their respective knowledge silos.
