Opening: 1st of April 2017, 7pm

Dataflow and BioArt courses at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar come together to showcase and test drive their explorations dealing with networking and symbiosis, while touching upon an understanding of aesthetics and the environment that goes beyond the human sphere.
