New Representational Spaces Programme

The Arts & Genomics Centre was developed within the New Representational Spaces programme which aims to describe and analyse the unique role that the visual arts can have in the critical evaluation and dissemination of the results of genomics research. The Arts & Genomics Centre serves as a tool to make the programme's results available.

Research projects within the New Representational Spaces Programme will contribute to The Arts & Genomics Centre

  • PhD-project: The history of interactions between art and genomicsPhD-student: Drs. Danielle Hofmans
    In this PhD-project the historical development of the interactions between the visual arts and genomics will be described and analysed. This project will contribute to The Arts & Genomics Centre by providing theoretical and practical tools to the Centre to stimulate and initiate new intersections between arts and genomics.

  • PhD-project: The dissemination of knowledge as a function of art
    PhD-student: Drs. Jenny Boulboullé

    This PhD-project examines the specific ways in which art assimilates and represents the results and consequences of genomics research and how art (and artists) contribute to the dissemination of knowledge. The project will provide The Arts & Genomics Centre with necessary conceptual and practical tools to attain its goals.

  • Synthesizing project: Signification and experiment in art and genomics
    Dr. Miriam van Rijsingen
    This synthesizing project pursues the issue whether there is a theoretical ground for the thesis that art and genomics explore and develop common grounds of representation and signification and are therefore able to learn from each other. The synthesizing project both draws on and guides theoretically the PhD-projects. Moreover, it will provide The Arts & Genomics Centre with the theoretical resources and concepts that it needs to develop into a theoretically sound and productive centre of information and exchange between art and genomics.
