Festival programme with its title “TRANSBIOTICS. Temporal Stability Points” will take place in collaboration with a large scale academic research event – „Textures” – the 6th European meeting of the Society for Literature, Science and the Arts which is devoted to exploring materials, structures, surfaces and interfaces transformed by the networked media.
The main event of the festival is the biotechnology art exhibition “TRANSBIOTICS” which will be held June 15 – 20 inkim? Galleries at Spikeri. Although using technologies and scientific discoveries in art is not a novelty, using “live matter” in creating artworks can be considered as an unusual practice. The exhibition will feature a collection of international biotechnology artworks which will be made available to Latvia’s audiences for the first time.
