The exhibition focuses on the influence of technology on socio-cultural processes through fourteen works of a digital, biological, and interactive nature. The exhibition deals with the roleof organisms in their environment, the effects of humans on their habitats, and biomaterials and technologies as artistic material. Many of the works on display are based on scientific experiments that are scrutinized in a cultural context. Interactions of humans with non-human creatures and with machines and technology will be examined in equal measure. In order to develop new ways of understanding, the exhibition proposes continuous, evolving feedback processes between the respective actors.
Shared Habitats refers to the ideas of the biologist Jakob von Uexkull — his respect for the world of the individual and perception of a being — and develops an aesthetic of exchange. We develop visions and new spheres of shared environments. At the same time, the exhibition wants to present the Bauhaus University as a place of continuous innovation in art, technology, and science.
