The exhibition "Lynn Hershman Leeson: Anti-Bodies" at HeK is staged as a scientific laboratory. In collaboration with Novartis, an antibody named Lynn Hershman in its molecular structure was developed exclusively for this exhibition. His individual characteristics were researched and described in the exhibition.

In conversation with Thomas, we go through the exhibition "Lynn Hershman Leeson: Anti-Bodies". Based on selected works, we investigate how the boundaries between natural and artificial life in the age of synthetic biology are increasingly dissolving and how life today can be artificially shaped.

Afterwards all participants are invited to a snack, where the discussions can continue in a personal setting.

The talk will take place in German.
