BadLab Manifesto

Nature has all properties of self healing and remedy. We use spell and magic for coevolution within cyberspace.
BadLab is a collective laboratory of interdisciplinary ideas and practices around plants.
It consists of installations, libraries, screenings, workshops, food, textile, objects, sound and movement.
We collectively investigate plant knowledge and ancient practices.

What is a "Bad Lab" compared to a scientific laboratory?
Reflecting on what productivity means, we focus on exploration rather than on delivering results.
Learning by Doing Together, we dig into the diversity that nature offers with
un/toxic plants and microbes, attempting to rewrite strings of (Hi)stories,
looking at human’s capability of understanding and perceiving the world.

We are as interested in transcendental gestures and
in the complex relationships between society and our environment.
we perform technophile rituals and summon on archetypal knowledge.
As a collective, we value relationships and want to highlight
all hidden and emotional labor, which is often carried by women.
