HLabX Programme

HLabX is a concentrated gathering of people working transdisciplinary who are interested in creative biological fields and any other areas which intrigue the critical interaction across art and science. In the past, Hackteria has been organising both carefully planned and/or spontaneous activities. The HackteriaLabs have been providing vessels which create international networks and potential collaboration to emerge and flourish. HackteriaLab’s main focus always has been on the process of interaction between creative people , between professionals and amateurs, providing a stimulant for collaborative processes ; for developing new ideas which connect and embrace the cultural diversities of the participants; and to address societal challenges through experiments with DIWO Culture , with material, technique, and nature through hands-on tinkering, curiosity driven research and never ending inquisitiveness . After the last large-scale HackteriaLab 2014 - Yogyakarta, we are looking forward to host this HLabX Programme involving a series of related events, gatherings, residencies, temporary labs and it’s presentations in 2019-2020 in Taiwan, Yogyakarta, Okinawa, Switzerland and beyond. We want to connect the old and new networks which we have created throughout our activities during the past 10 years.

Klöntal BioHack Retreat

In cooperation with Hackteria.org, the artist Maya Minder invites people from the international biohackers scene to stay in the Klöntal (Alpine valley in the Canton of Glarus, Switzerland), Sep 20-24, 2017. 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.
