A number of smaller events, workshops, residencies and exhibitions will prequel the main collaborative lab-phase. It is the fourth edition of an intensive two-week transdisciplinary collaboration amongst international and local artists, hackers, activists, scientists, and designers. HackteriaLab 2014 expands on ideas and methodologies about BioArt, DIY biology, Appropriate Technology, ArtScience and BioHacking, developed during the previous versions of HackteriaLab 2011 – Romainmotier and HackteriaLab 2010 – Dock18/Zürich in Switzerland and HackteriaLab_2013_-_Bangalore in India.
Within the framework of “Hackteria | Open Source Biological Art”, the HackteriaLab immersive format plays a key role in experimentation and the development of new models for knowledge sharing and collaboration building, in the emergent artistic practices related to bio- and nanotechnology and science in general.
HackteriaLab, our version of a production workshop, is a form of cultural intervention, contributing to the development of our contemporary culture and art milieu. It creates a melting pot of the practices of art and science, of culture and environment. It aims to broaden the intercultural knowledge exchange and realizes this know-how through workshops, participatory prototype exhibitions and online wiki-like documentations.
HackteriaLab 2014 invites international artists and scientists to collaborate with local communities, which have been intensively working with specific local social and ecological issues in Yogyakarta.
