AIAS Fellows' Seminar: Lotte Philipsen, Jens Christian Skou Junior Fellow

Title: Holy Cow! The aesthetic intersection of art and bio-science.

2013.08.29 | AIAS

Date Mon 09 Dec
Time 14:15 16:15
Location The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 6B, 8000 Aarhus C



This talk investigates the relationship between on the one hand selected works of art that make use of bio-science and on the other hand bio-scientific projects that look like works of art that make use of bio-science.

Despite the obvious institutional discrepancies between the two – the former belongs in the art gallery and the latter in the laboratory – the talk aims to demonstrate how and why both have aesthetic potentials.

Marie Braad Lund, Dale T. Mortensen Fellow, will introduce the talk.


Lotte Philipsen is a Jens Christian Skou Junior Fellow at AIAS. She holds a PhD in Art History and has done extensive research in contemporary art with a special focus on contemporary art and its relation to globalisation and to new media. She is the author of the book Globalizing Contemporary Art (AU Press, 2010).
