ASN is a creative & innovative community, a place, and a network.
within the EU program Horizon 2020
under the Horizon 2020 NMBP, BIOTEC (Art, Research & Innovation):
Chicory as a multi-purpose crop for dietary fibre and medicinal terpenes (CHIC).
The CHIC project is highly interdisciplinary and focused on interaction with stakeholders. It aims to evaluate the technological performance of a range of different New Plant Breeding Techniques (NPBTs), and their associated safety, environmental, regulatory, socio-economic, and broader societal issues. The research program will ensure responsible innovation and will raise public awareness by involving stakeholders and considering their needs and concerns in all phases of the project.
ASN/ASSF will contribute to the CHIC project through an innovative communication strategy of art and science synergy, giving artists and cultural actors a rare opportunity to work at the forefront of science and innovation.
The planned art and science program, including two artistic residencies at research institutes, aims to link scientific research and ideas with approaches used in digital art, fostering interdisciplinary work towards an exchange of cultures and milieus.

„CAPTURE THE FUTURES: EVOLUTION II, Elusive Identity”
Identity & Data
official partner event of
TRANSMEDIALE/ART&DIGITALCULTURE 2017 FESTIVAL https://transmediale.de
The new landscape of dynamic, post-digital reality raises questions regarding the coordinates of modern human identity. Is the elusive border of human and nonhuman a potential beginning of the brave new world? How can we navigate between the fast evolving future, while constantly redefining ourselves? Art and science together might provide potential orientations. We invite you to join our panel discussion on “Elusive Identity” to discover how some of the most outstanding, international researchers and artists attempt to capture our future. Redefine evolution through intensely immersive and mind opening ways, while attending our workshop and exhibition, all in the cradle of the German innovation, the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA).

STATE of Emotions. The Sentimental Machine
The fundamental bio-molecules, which make life possible, are usually perceived as cellular robots, designed to perform their encoded functions. ASN will present several artistic projects making res invisible visible, in which cellular robots become not only metaphors of life and its evolution, of beauty and truth in nature, but also means of interpersonal communication and embodiment of human pride, creativity, desires as well as fears.
