Welcome to the Colloquium

Biotechnologies announce the emergence of major breakthroughs and fresh insights into various fields of knowledge in the near future: new medical treatments, improvements in agriculture, the mapping of the genomes of various species, the customized reconfiguration of bodies. Such potent promises are both fascinating and disquieting, raising many uncertainties and posing questions difficult to resolve. During this colloquium, international theorists and artists will explore these issues by presenting research and artworks situated at the intersection of art, science and artificial systems.
