Colliding Epistemes: Science for Art’s sake? – Announcements

Just after almost two many years of Art & Science residencies, Bozar Centre for High-quality Arts (Brussels) presents the creative effects (drawings, paintings, video artworks, experimental ceramics…) of a collaborative procedure in which science and tech laboratories have opened up to artistic invention to deliver unconventional responses to planetary worries.

The boundaries involving science and artwork have been fully destabilized by the Anthropocene—the most modern period of time in Earth’s record, when human action commenced to have a important impact on the planet’s climate and ecosystems.

From Could 6 to June 19, 2022, Bozar is bringing alongside one another in its Bozar Lab artworks that emerged from a collaborative procedure in which science and tech laboratories have opened up to inventive invention. The impulse for these collaborations resides in the in this article and now of local weather breakdown and biodiversity collapse, a planetary disaster.

The exhibition Colliding Epistemes: Science for Art’s sake?, curated by Maja and Reuben Fowkes, investigates the outcomes of bringing creative positions and scientific know-how into near proximity, exploring the friction that occurs from the collision of disciplines, methodologies and mindsets. The variety of ways in this exhibition displays the eclectic palette of scientific knowledge in the Studiotopia project, from oncology and psychology to chemistry and biology. The final results? They are equally huge-ranging: from drawings and paintings, to video clip artworks and experimental ceramics.

Do you want to make the most of your check out? Every Saturday from 2–5pm, our mediators are there to reply all your questions in the exhibition. 

Maja and Reuben Fowkes (London, Uk) are founders of the Translocal Institute for Contemporary Artwork, co-directors of the Postsocialist Art Centre (PACT) at University Faculty London and authors of Art and Local weather Alter (Thames & Hudson, 2022).

About Studiotopia: Art satisfies Science in the Anthropocene
This exhibition is the end result of 13 art-science collaborative residencies organised within the framework of Studiotopia: Artwork meets Science in the Anthropocene (2019-2022), an initiative co-funded by the Imaginative Europe programme of the European Union, and hosted by eight cultural institutions across Europe. Doing the job along with Ars Electronica in Linz, GLUON in Brussels, LABoral in Gijon, Onassis Stegi in Athens and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the venues for the three iterations of the exhibition are Laznia Centre for Modern day Art in Gdansk, the Centre for Wonderful Arts (Bozar) in Brussels and Cluj Cultural Centre in Cluj.

The Studiotopia programme aims to increase collaborations concerning cultural and exploration establishments, academia, innovation centres, creatives and citizens. Studiotopia encourages renowned and emerging modern day visible artists to host a scientist or researcher in the impartial & inspiring atmosphere of their studios, reversing the normal technique whereby artists are invited to perform at R&D departments of universities or firms.

All through the length of this initiative (2019-2022), Studiotopia has proposed a huge programme of actions throughout the partnering establishments: residencies, exhibitions, pop-up labs, workshops and talks.
