Residence conditions

The wetlab is a space where hybrid interactions that disrupt the limits generally established between art and science take place under a transhackfeminist perspective and through a critical revision of science as an institution. Workshops, presentations, research residences, collective work processes and discussions are carried out at the lab. Its intention is to facilitate the encounter between artists, scientists and different social agents, destabilizing the contemporary conditions of knowledge production and promoting the development of free access open tools that facilitate knowledge transfer. The resident collectives at Wetlab are thought of as projects capable of establishing a conceptual and practical interrelationship with the centre, creating new communities of learning and care around their field of work.
