Exhibition Gerrit Rietveld Academie about Genomics on Wageningen Campus


Exhibition Gerrit Rietveld Academie about Genomics on Wageningen Campus

Artists and scientists often look at the same problem or question, but from a different perspective. When art and science intersect, inspiring ideas arise. On 19 May, Louise Fresco of Wageningen UR opens a new exhibition, in collaboration with students of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie called ‘Genomics’. This exhibition shows the work of students of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie who have been inspired by the research of Wageningen UR concerning Genomics.

What is genomics?

Genomics is a collective term for a broad spectrum of research techniques used to gain insight into the structure and functioning of the genetic material of plants, animals and microorganisms.

Disruptive thinking

We cannot imagine progress and wellbeing anymore without technology and objects designed and made by humans. A fascinating new category of design is emerging, combining engineering with ecology, biology, genetics and chemistry and insights from the social sciences. Not surprisingly that the opening of the academic year 2015 / 2016 was marked by ‘Disruptive thinking’, which means a certain way of thinking; free, optimistic and with a new view.

Art is also a portait of an era and it says something about how people look at their own society.
Louise Fresco, President of the Executive Board of Wageningen UR
