Maya Minder‘s (b. 1983, lives in Zürich) Gasthaus combines artistic, curatorial, and activist interests into communal culinary events at various locations. For the Klöntal Triennial, she designed the opening dinner and also offers a series of workshops, including a biohacking workshop and a fermentation workshop, over the course of the Triennial‘s duration. Fermentation repeatedly features as a central aspect of her work, not only literally but also as a metaphor for social ferment, agitation, and incitation to resistance. Minder opposes the structures of food industry by promoting local selforganization, ecological sustainability, and community. She resuscitates traditional food productions methods with a certain relish, saving them from otherwise being forgotten. Her interests span the fields of art, politics, and biohacking, and she often invites other protagonists from these and various other fields to participate in the process of communal exchange. Facilitating interdisciplinary, intercultural dialogue amongst the participants is one of the primary goals of her practice.

Hackteria X Why ZET

Workshops, Discussions, Fanzines and Memorabilia

HLabX was a series of residencies and concentrated gatherings of people working transdisciplinary who are interested in creative biological fields and any other areas which intrigue the critical interaction across art and science. It was held over the last 12 months with activities in Taiwan, Indonesia and Switzerland and culminated this April during Oki Wonder Lab in Okinawa, Japan.

We will bring together our global and local collaborators to reflect on the last decade of activities (X), dream about our collaborative futures (Why) and launch our new local programme "Zentrum für Experimentelle Transdisziplinarität" (ZET) with the innauguration of our new OpenScience Lab in the shared hackerspace collective of Bitwäscherei, in the heart of Zürich.

He got his master in science of Microtechnologoy from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne. Subsequent to that he attended Post-Graduate programs in international business and innovation-management. In 2016 completed the course of study in the Principles and Applications of Synthetic Biology as directed by Georg Curch, Professor of Genetics at Harward Medical School. He is founder of GaudiLabs, a third space for third culture. He is a founding member and member of the board of Hackteria International Society. He is currently on the faculty of the Lucerne School for Applied Science and Arts. In his professional practice, Urs Gaudenz makes use of various forms of work and expression such as prototype development, open scientific research and collaborative workshops. He is combining his different backgrounds to explore new technological and cultural fields and his works often emerges out of the void in this intersection. Remarkable in his work is the wide span from speculative and futuristic to very functional and applied. He worked with and was inspired by Dr. Marc Dusseiller - dusjagr labs, the Swiss Mechatronic Art Society, the GynePunk, BioDesign for the Real World, Sci | Art NanoLab Summer Institute at UCLA, LifePatch. He was invited to give workshops or exhibit projects at renown institutions and festivals such as Ars Electronica - Projekt Genesis, ISEA - International Symposium on Electronic Art, DOCK18, space for media cultures of the world, Kapelica Gallery / BioTehna, Schloss Werdenberg, N/O/D/E festival, Medialab-Prado Madrid, CYNETART-Festival - Trans-Media-Akademie.

Venue: Kunstraum Walcheturm

Der Kunstraum Walcheturm versteht sich als Ort, wo zeitgenössische Kunst präsentiert, vermittelt und zur Diskussion gestellt wird. Mit seinem Programm, das zeitgenössische Kunst, neue Medien, Video und Film, neue Musik, experimentelle elektronische Musik, Performance und Sound Art umspannt, steht der Walcheturm zwischen Kunsthallen, Galerien und Offspaces. Er bietet nationalen wie internationalen Kunstschaffenden und einem differenzierten Publikum ein anspruchsvolles Experimentierfeld.

Der Kunstraum Walcheturm lotet zeitgenössische Strömungen innerhalb der Schweizer Kunstszene aus und führt Künstler_innen aus der Schweiz mit Künstler_innen aus anderen Ländern zusammen. Dank seiner internationalen Verbindungen zu Kunstinstitutionen, Projekten und Netzwerken ähnlicher Ausrichtung, mit Workshops, Diskussionsveranstaltungen und einem virtuellen Archiv fördert der Walcheturm die wichtige und anspruchsvolle Vermittlung neuer Kunstformen und den Dialog mit der Öffentlichkeit.

Die gut besuchten Veranstaltungen zeigen, dass sich der Walcheturm in den vergangenen Jahren als nicht-kommerzielle Institution erfolgreich positionieren konnte. Gezielt werden Initiativen im Bereich der digitalen Medien vorgestellt und damit Schnittstellen zwischen den verschiedenen Ausdrucksformen gebildet. Hier werden Entwicklungen und Projekte eines erweiterten Kunstbegriffes beleuchtet und präsentiert. Und hier wird der Zugang zu einer lebendigen Kultur geschaffen, die sich in den Grenzzonen des Kunstbetriebs befindet.
