Book Launch



Art, Biopolitics, and Networks with Care

Welcome to the Book Launch of the new book MATTER OF FLUX. Art, Biopolitics, and Networks with Care published by Art Laboratory Berlin. We would be glad to celebrate with you the release of our brand new book at the Theater Hall of PA58 in Prinzenallee 58, opposite of Art Laboratory Berlin.

The publication presents a sustainable insight into the research project MATTER OF FLUX at Art Laboratory Berlin. It is a part of a group exhibition on art, body biopolitics, and feminist technoscience, as well as a network and a festival from and for international Berlin-based FLINTA* in art, science, and technology.

The book assembles essays and statements along with documentation in text and images by around 50 authors whose many fields of expertise create the polyphonic ground of MATTER OF FLUX: art, design, film making, curatorial practice, dramaturgy, music, art history, media theory, anthropology, philosophy, sociology, feminist history of science, microbiology, plant ecology, biotechnology, neuroscience, and physical science.

MATTER OF FLUX is a unique project that combines micro views on the cellular level with macro perspectives on more-than-human ecologies. The project is based upon the careful network creation of research hives.
