Studio Opening Program and Field Experiments Vernissage

Field Experiments
Vernissage and Studio Opening Program

In the run-up to Berlin Science Week, the opening of STATE Studio marks the birth of a new, lively forum for public discourse on philosophical and ethical dimensions of the latest trends in research and innovation.


Field Experiments: Exhibition Laboratory for Science, Art, and Society

The kick-off of the exhibition series Field Experiments evokes images of a society in which humans extend their lifespan through genome editing, in which intelligent machines are no longer just tools, explores the acceptance of novel synthetic-biological prototypes, and shows the faces of researchers and creatives whose interdisciplinary work is driving change in art, technology, and science. The mixed media exhibition presents both the work of artists and researchers, including Emilia Tikka, Marco Donnarumma, Veronika Natter and the artistic research project Farming the Uncanny Valley with works of Natsai Audrey Chieza, Clemens Winkler, Paul Ferragut, Ann-Kristin Abel, Łukasz Stopczynski, Martin Luge.
