Bio art: Contemporary Art and Life Sciences is an innovative summer course
that will allow non-specialist to acquire theoretical and practical skills
in the biological sciences in its connection to the visual arts. This
course is therefore a crossover between the visual arts and biology for
students, researchers and others who want to explore the interdisciplinary
relationship in the intersections between art and life sciences through a
hands-on exercise: seminars, visits and the creation of artworks by
biological means are some of the topics that will be explored.

The Bioarte course results of a combination of theoretical seminars, which
will address issues such as the cultural representations of technoscience,
ethical issues and cultural of bioart. A practical component that will
focus in hands-on exercises, where it will highlighted the possibility of
transforming scientific ideas and abstract concepts into art objects, the
collection and selection of organisms for artistic purposes and, finally,
attended visits to the Biotechnology Laboratories of the Polytechnic
Institute of Leiria.
Across the course, it will be provided a vast cultural program.
