Art x Science in Dialogue

What can art contribute to environmental debates? The project Experimental Ecology unites five artists and five scientists in a transdisciplinary collaboration within the field of ecology, aiming to develop novel ways of investigating our impact on the biosphere.

In the spirit of the famous E.A.T. (Experiments in Art and Technology), which brought together artists and engineers in 1967, this current project again initiates the exchange between art and science within the ongoing discourse on our relation with the natural environment. The collaborative nature was expanded to include public in the concepts’ collaborative development during a symposium held in fall 2022. The resulting projects are now presented in an exhibition and a catalogue.

Experimental Ecology is curated by Martina Huber and Gianni Jetzer and presents five works from five collaborative teams: 
Sissel Tolaas x Christina Agapakis, Ingo Niermann x Alex Jordan, Michelle-Marie Letelier x Karin Pittman, Zheng Bo x Matthias Rillig, Riikka Tauriainen x Meike Vogt.
