Natural Habitat


Art + Nature + Technology

Natural Habitat: What happens if art and nature and technology come together? Are new worlds created? Is the distinction between nature and technology still visible, or do the two increasingly merge with one another?

In the Natural Habitat project artists are working at the interface of nature and technology. Here they investigate the extent to which nature and technology complement each other, and show possitive ideas of a new nature. In Natural Habitat the boundaries between nature, culture and technology become increasingly blurred. The project consists of an exhibition Natural Habitat, from November 4 untill December 16 (opening November 4, 15.00 hour) and a seminar Art and Science in their Natural Habitat on Saturday November 11 from 13.00 - 17.30 hour. Information about the Art and Science in their Natural Habitat seminar.

During the MuseumNight Saturday November 4 from 19.00 – 02.00 hour a special programme is organized in relation to Natural Habitat with an all-night intervention by Bodies Anonymous around the video installation Geomania (1987) by Steina Vasulka and visitors can have their own DNA put into a contemporary chain with met Genes in a Bottle (start 21.00 h. limited edition).
