Report and summary here [pdf: 4,4 MB]
From medieval mythologies we are familiar with hybrid creatures like
the Centaur and the Griffon. The creation of these fantasy beings
denies in itself the very existence of species as we define the term
today. The tendency to try to abolish the species´s and our body´s
limitations seems to be a recurring theme with mankind.
This years conference highlights amongst others how knowledge from new
research and insight radically can happen to change human biology and
self understanding, and how art practise both becomes influenced by
this development, as well as being able to influence the same.
