This lecture is part of the program of the exhibition Fluid Matter, Liquid and Life in Motion, on view until 26 February 2017. At the heart of Fluid Matter are the three winning projects of the Bio Art and Design Award 2016, developed in collaboration with leading Dutch researchers in the life sciences. They are presented alongside several recent works that share a dimension of fluidity.
