Year 1+2: Guest lecture

Agnieszka A. Wolodzko  | Friday 15.12. | 10.00 - 12.30 

In her research Agnieszka investigates ways in which art, by using living bodies as its medium, reveal overall cultural, social and political significance of affect in the contemporary understanding of manipulated bodies. Agnieszka is leading the AKI reserach programme BIO MATTERs and the AKI BIO LAB.

With the new biotechnologies such as cloning, tissue engineering, DNA editing and the research on microbiome our old understanding of what is life and living bodies, nature and culture have stopped having any fixed meaning and relevance. Artists known as bioartists and biodesigners have begun to use living matter as a form of visual speculation but also hands-on manipulation, actively participating in shaping an understanding of what life is and what living bodies might be and do.
