The Conference Art & Science – Hybrid Art and Interdisciplinary Research 30 May – 1 June 2014 Estonian Academy of Arts, Estonia Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts, Estonia


The Conference Art & Science – Hybrid Art and Interdisciplinary Research
30 May – 1 June 2014
Estonian Academy of Arts, Estonia
Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts, Estonia

The collaboration between art and science and various hybrid research practices have become keywords of the 21st century. Artworks, where different fields are intertwined, which involve scientific innovation as well as cultural/historical traditions, expand our imagination and provoke questions that are important for us today.

We wish to search answers to the following key questions:
1. How to understand science and art in a contemporary framework? How do we understand interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary phenomena?

2. How is new knowledge produced through the collaboration of art and science? How to expand the dialogue between science and art and how could artists position themselves in this process?
3. How do scientific knowledge and artistic research spread in the society? How to find a common research language that would also conform to the cultural expectations of our society?

The conference Art & Science – Hybrid Art and Interdisciplinary Research will be held from 30 May to 1 June 2014 in Tallinn, Estonia. This conference accompanies an exhibition on the same topic, titled Rhizope, which takes place from 29 May to 24 August 2014 at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design.
The conference is organized by the Estonian Academy of Arts and the Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts, with the support from the Estonian Cultural Endowment, embassy of the United States, Tallinn, Estonia and other partners. The main objective of the conference is to promote discussion on the connection and mutual influence between arts and different fields of science.


We are looking for papers for 20 minute presentations on the confluence of art and science in the fields of hybrid arts, social sciences, design, urbanism, environmental studies etc. Our main target group is doctoral students from different fields of research.

Synthetic biology
is a new area of biological research that combines science and engineering. Synthetic biology encompasses a variety of different approaches, methodologies and disciplines, with the aim to design and construct new biological functions and systems not found in nature. Most approaches of Synthetic biology are based on genetic engineering but goes much further. In genetic engineering the goal is to manipulate an organism’s genes, usually by transferring one gene from a donor to a host organism. Synthetic biology, on the other hand, aims at creating whole new biological functions, systems and eventually organisms (Schmidt 2012). Other SB approaches are dealing with making novel life-forms from “scratch” (for example protocells). Synthetic Biology is still in its beginnings but if it reaches its potential promises it will become a highly transformative technology in terms of economy, ecology and ethics.

is a series of three consecutive work periods over the course of 12 months. The first period will take place between 22nd – 27th of May 2014 in Helsinki, the second is planned for November 2014 in Vienna, and the third, in May 2015, will take place again in Helsinki. The goal of Making_Life is to enable practitioners to critically and in an informed manner, engage with the socio-cultural, political and ethical ramifications of synthetic biology through art. We will select a group of international multidisciplinary participants composed of artists, designers, engineers, scientists and students who will cooperate within this bottom-up devised program. The methods will shift from workshops, laboratory sessions and field trips, to forums, seminars and lectures. It will comprise theoretical as well as hands on approaches. The first and second work period will cover the introduction to synthetic biology, its sciences and technologies, the work on associated questions in art, ecology, ethics and politics and practical experience in the laboratory and with experiments. The third work period will be an intense session to create prototypes for artworks. The time in between the periods is for developing and deepening the participants’ focus of investigation. Participants are expected to join work periods I+II after which the participants for the period III are selected.

we are able to give support for travel and accommodation if required.
