BioArt project: Artists Survey Questionnaire
We would greatly appreciate a few minutes of your time to fill out this questionnaire.
BioArt as a new art form, which is associated with different forms of life, raises many debates, controversies, conflicts, approbation or disapprobation. However, research outlining the impact of BioArt exhibitions to the public has not been extensively conducted.
TEI of Athens, in collaboration with researchers from Columbia University and the Panteion University of Athens, has launched a research project entitled “BioArt: Borders and definitions. Research project for the development of a widely accepted deontological framework of its production and management”. One of the main focuses of the project is the exploration of biological materials used by artists, their motives, possible conflicts raised by social groups or cultural professionals, legal or ethical restrictions in their respective countries etc. These are the main points explored in the questionnaire that are being addressed to bioartists.
