Friday May 22nd this year's Bio Art and Design Award (BAD Award) winners will be announced!
The BAD Award (called Designers & Artists 4 Genomics Award till 2013) is a unique competition that aims at stimulating young artists and designers from The Netherlands and abroad to experiment with bioart and design and to collaborate with renowned Dutch science centers.
The Award aims to:
- stimulate interest, excitement and debate about the Life Sciences through high-quality, original artistic practice;
- examine the social, cultural and ethical contexts of the Life Sciences through the arts;
- promote high-quality interdisciplinary practice and collaborations between art/ design and science/technology.
The Awards of €25.000,- each are assigned by an international jury to the most promising and original proposals in the competition. The projects are consequently realised within six months and exhibited. Some contestants who do not get an Award still find other ways to realize their ideas.
This year's finalists will pitch their proposal for the audience and a jury. Three of them will be granted an Award of 25.000 euros. See the shortlist here.
The Bio Art & Design Award ceremony is open for public and press. If you want to attend, please register via the online registration form!
