HackteriaLab2011 program -
The Reflection - Kunstraum Walcheturm - Zurich

Hackteria is a highly interdisciplinary multicultural group of artists, hackers and scientists who work and share their knowledge on DIY biology, generic lab infrastructure and garage science. Following the 6 day Retreat in L'ARC, Romainmotier - the second annual international HackteriaLab - Hackteria invites the public to participate in two days of workshops, presentations and discussions around various aspects of art and science practice. This weekend program will serve to conclude, communicate and reflect on the work and developments which have come about through our collaborative experiments over the last week.
