For the first time, the works created in the residency by Masami Saito, Andrea Vasquez Garcia, Tamara Knapp, Luca Spano and Claus Schöning Lam Yong will be on display. The Exhibition gathers five positions that address scientific processes in very different ways. Some works were created specifically with scientific methods and put, for example, cellular material in new contexts. Others make use of the aesthetics and forms found in laboratories – from the fungi to be researched, to the instruments, to the performance of the processes. Again others negotiate the concept of science itself and its (historical) relation to the city of Jena.
In sculpture, installation and film, the exhibition presents a complex picture of diverse aesthetic strategies; concrete references and enigmatic suggestions.

On September 2nd, 2021 we welcomed the biologist and artist Joe Davis, who has been developing innovative concepts and artistic-scientific positions since the 80s and is widely regarded as a pioneer of the BioArt scene. With him and other guests, we began a public discourse on the technologies of the future.
Our kick-off event took place in the TRAFO on July 24th, 2021. All videos of the evening can be viewed again here.
