ART IN THE BIOTECH ERA
Melentie Pandilovski, Editor
Published by the Experimental Art Foundation
Biotechnology promises to have an even more profound impact on culture than the electronics and communications revolutions of the last decades. It will change our basic concepts of life and humanity. It will challenge us with new unprecedented capabilities to manipulate life. What are the philosophical and ethical implications of all this? What role should the arts play?
Melentie Pandilovski’s book ART IN THE BIOTECH ERA brings together artists and writers who approach this question from many diverse positions — systemic, critical, positivist, aesthetic, and postmodern. Including documentation of art in addition to essays ART IN THE BIOTECH ERA is a major tool for artists and theorists working and playing in the dynamic field of bioarts.
