HackteriaLab2011 – the Reflection

We are now in the final stage of HackteriaLab2011, which we have called the Reflection. In Kunstraum Walcheturm in Zurich we are staging an exhibition, workshops and a series of presentations and discussions in order to share with the public the techniques, ideas and experiences we have gained over the past few days at L’ARC in Romainmotier.

On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th of August we will run workshops on USB video microscopy, making the Finnish wine Kilju (possibly in a van), preparing agar slants and more. There will also be presentations on the lab itself, plus everyday science, and international contexts of Hackteria and related projects. The days will finish off with round table discussions and AV performances.

The full program (minus the inevitable spontaneous and unpredictable happenings) is below:

Ongoing both days:
