Artists in Residence Program UPV ai2

We invite anyone interested in interdisciplinary research and the field of art to submit a project related to the objectives and research lines of the Laboratory of Synthetic Biology and Biosystems Control UPV. Synthetic biology currently offers many expectations in the food, construction and fashion sectors, while at the same time generating numerous controversies. We invite you to participate in this call, contributing from diverse identities, how to explain the transformations, applications and implications that synthetic biology introduces in different areas of society? Is it possible to include an intersectional point of view in scientific-technical practices to avoid biases?

If you want to carry out an artistic project within the framework of the Laboratory of Synthetic Biology and Biosystems Control, with the collaboration of the Faculty of Fine Arts, the Cultural Action Area of the UPV, and the Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània (CCCC), download and read both documents carefully to prepare your application.
