In February 2004 the EAF presented Art of the Biotech Era – an exhibition, symposium & workshop. Since 2004 the EAF has expanded the Art of the Biotech Era project through various undertakings such as Eduardo Kac's Biotech Art workshop in 2005 involving leading national and international artists and theorists presenting works exploring biotechnology and genomics and discussing the influence of this techno-scientific change of society, the ethical implications of genetic engineering and the concept of aesthetics in biotech arts.
As a part of the project, the EAF has commissioned texts from over 20 national and international writers, published here together with images from artists working in the field. Art in the Biotech Era is a comprehensive compilation of theories and practices surrounding issues of art and biotechnology.
