Art & Science Node, a Berlin-based platform for art, science, and technology intersections, in collaboration with the EU CHIC Innovation Consortium, a research and innovation project supported by EU Horizon 2020, has brought together an extensive gathering of scientists, artists, innovators, and experts working in and around the disciplines of art, food, health and agriculture for their program Our Bio-Tech Planet: Future of Plants and Humans.
Our Bio-Tech Planet: Future of Plants and Humans, which took place in Rome’s historic Botanic Gardens, aimed to foster new dialogues concerning the vegetal realm and our future through workshops, an exhibition, talks & panel discussions, a video program, live performances, and AR experiences.
Weaving narratives between kingdoms and disciplines, Our Bio-Tech Planet examines our present fraught with crises and ecological devastation and asks how the future can be shaped and steered toward a more hopeful and sustainable vision. From this imaginative and critical lens, the curatorial team has brought together artists Jill Scott, Marille Hahne and the artistic collaboration between Alex May and Anna Dumitriu as their artists in residence.
Works of the events’ Rhizospehre, including artists Joanna Hoffmann and Andre Bartetzki, Larys Łubowicki, Paulina Misiak, Jadwige Subczyńska, Piotr Słomczewski and the programs’ Future of Plants and Humans artists Sanja Andelković, Funda Zeynep Aygüler, Ismaele Bonomi, Lilia Chak in collaboration with Olga Kisseleva, Neo Christopher Chung with George Dyer, Tuana Inhan, Rob Kesseler, Olga Kisseleva, Yujue Liang, Maisha Maene Miyuki Oka, Felicitas Rohden, Eric Schockmel, and Laurent Mignonneau and Christa Sommerer.
