Dr. Pinar Yoldaş
An Ecosystem of Excess; Metabolising Plastics, 2022
Free admission, no booking required, in English
In the context of the current special exhibition Territories of Waste, we cordially invite you to the interactive lecture performance by artist and researcher Pinar Yoldaş.
The oceans were once the starting point for evolution. In her work, the artist asks the question: If life were to evolve from the plastic soup of our oceans, what organisms and organs would emerge? Inspired by the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, she created an ecosystem of speculative organisms.
In her lecture performance, the artist looks at the history of plastic as well as the future and raises the question of the opportunities and risks of genome editing.
