<nettime-ann> [event] [CALIFORNIA] Bio, Art and Public Sphere: Conference and Workshop Announcement



BIOART AND PUBLIC SPHERE:
A WORKSHOP AND CONFERENCE SERIES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA IRVINE

Conference: Monday October 17
Biotech Art Workshop conducted by SymbioticA: October 10-14

This initiative aims to bring together artists, biologists, and science 
studies scholars, to address a broad range of questions about science 
in the public sphere. The list of possible research domains to be 
investigated includes, but is not limited to, genomics, tissue 
engineering, genetic engineering and stem cell research.
	1 	What types of models of interdisciplinary engagement might 
facilitate rich, well-informed public participation in scientific 
discourse?
	2 	How do we go beyond the "demo" model often used by science museums 
and approach the subject matter in an experiential hands-on way that 
allows for failure, redirection of research questions and the promotion 
of agency towards an area that is usually reserved for the expert 
community?
	3 	What types of epistemological questions emerge at the intersection 
of biology, art, and the public sphere? How would an exchange mutually 
benefit the research areas of each discipline? Under which umbrella 
could research collaborations of this kind be supported?

We are specifically interested in the relationship of these research 
areas to the social landscape of the pharmaceutical industry, the 
agricultural industry, global trade and corporate license agreements, 
the framing of biosecurity and biodefense, constructions of disease, 
and the global politics of the reproductive health industry.
