Biohack Retreat Klöntal 2017 – Sep 20-24

In cooperation with, the artist Maya Minder invites people from the international biohacker networks to stay in the Klöntal (Alpine valley in the Canton of Glarus, Switzerland). Scientists, hackers and artists meet for the development of ideas and open exchange. Biohacking is an open science movement that tries to make science more accessible through a playful approach to biology and the life sciences. Public workshops in the temporary laboratory provide insights into the subject matter. Under the guidance, simple Do-It-Yourself lab devices are built and speculated by experimenting with living organisms and food via alternative bio- and food technologies. This has partly utopian potential, in contrast to commercially motivated research and offers easy access to complex research topics.

Transdisciplinary, Intercultural and Global
The Biohack Retreat Klöntal offers the opportunity to participate in a 5-day retreat with field trips and workshops and to enjoy the best company. Choose with your support a shorter or longer stay with food and accommodation in the fantastic and idyllic alpine valley of Klöntalersee.
