NOBA is initiating the establishment of a Nordic Bioart Network.
Many Nordic artists approach Bioart through a close relationship to the environment. In a time of groundbreaking progress within biotechnology, and awareness of ecological unbalance, the engagement and knowledge around biotechnology and the environment is of increasing importance. By reaching out to fellow organizations we are aiming to strengthen the art/science field in the Nordic countries.
By establishing a collaborative network, we can better support Nordic artists as well as introducing international artists to Nordic audiences. A collaborative and coordinated approach can strengthen the capacity to reach wider audiences with exhibitions, symposiums and workshops. It will also foster a practical and academic competence through sharing of ideas, skills and experience. We are also working towards a shared mentor program for young artists to invest in the future of the field.
