Trust Me I’m An Artist: Ethics Surrounding Art & Science Collaborations #ArtTuesday

NewImage

Via We Make Money Not Art

Do artists using biotechnological materials and scientific processes have the same obligations, rights and responsibilities as scientists? Or should they enjoy more liberties and particular prerogatives? And finally, do art and science collaborations bring about new ethical dilemmas, new debates and challenges?

A group exhibition open until Sunday evening at Zone2Source’s Het Glazen Huis in Amsterdam is engaging with all these questions through artworks that explore issues such as the ethical complexities of gene editing, the communication of nuclear culture over thousands of generations, the risks associated with medical self-experimentation, the difficulty to empathize with plants, etc.

The exhibition is the result of a European research project that aims to help artists, cultural institutions and audiences understand the ethical issues that arise in the creation and display of artworks developed in collaboration with scientific institutions.

The model followed by each of the artwork participating to the Trust Me I’m an Artist project is as follows: an artist or artist collective is teamed up with a research center to create a work that investigate the ethical limits of innovative (bio)technologies. The work is then exhibited. So far, so very usual.
