Description

At ethics debate Your cells in their hands?, an expert panel will discuss questions prompted by artist Gina Czarnecki and scientist John Hunt’s artwork Heirloom. Heirloom grows living portraits of Gina’s daughters from their own cells, and could lead to new developments in reconstructive medicine and cosmetic modification.

Questions for debate might include:

  • Where does identity lie when cells are grown outside the body?
  • Should we add 3D scans to biobanks containing our DNA?
  • Should biological artworks be patented?
  • How should artworks using biological methods be evaluated?

This event is part of the EU Creative Europe funded project Trust Me, I’m an Artist, which invites artists to present their work and its implications to specially selected panels, and invites public audiences to join the debate.

The expert panel will include Christina Wilson, Art Advisor and member of The Danish Council on Ethics; Morten Hillgaard Bülow, medical historian and philosopher; Ida Donkin, postdoctoral researcher in epigenetics at the NNF Center for Basic Metabolic Research and finalist in the PhD Cup 2016; and Jens Hauser, Paris and Copenhagen based media studies scholar and art curator.

The exhibition will be open from 6pm and the ethics debate will run from 7-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

Til etikdebatten Dine celler i deres hænder? vil et ekspertpanel diskutere spørgsmål afledt af kunstneren Gina Czarnecki og forskeren John Hunts kunstværk Arvestykker. I kunstværket Arvestykker vokser levende portrætter af Ginas døtre af deres egne celler, og metoden kan føre til nye udviklinger indenfor rekonstruktiv og kosmetiske kirurgi.

Panelet vil fx debattere:

  • Følger identitet med, når celler bliver dyrket udenfor kroppen?
  • Skal vi lægge oplysninger om vores kroppes form – fx 3D scanninger af ansigtet – i de biobanker der allerede har indsamler vores DNA?
  • Hvordan skal vi forholde os til brugen af biologisk materiale i kunst?
  • Må der tages patent på et biologisk kunstværk?

Paneldebatten afvikles som en del af projektet Trust Me, I’m an Artist, der er støttet af EU Creative Europe. Trust Me, I’m an Artist inviterer kunstnere til at præsentere deres arbejde for et panel, der diskuterer de etiske implikationer af kunstværket foran et publikum.

Ekspertpanelet består af: Christina Wilson, kunsthistoriker, kunstrådgiver og medlem af Det Etiske Råd; Morten Hillgaard Bülow, medicinhistoriker og filosof ved Medicinsk Museion; Ida Donkin, forsker i epigenetik på NNF Center for Basic Metabolic Research; og Jens Hauser, medieforsker og kunstkurator med tilknytning til både København og Paris.

Udstillingen (og museet) vil være åben fra klokken 18.00. Den etiske debat begynder klokken 19.00 og varer 2 timer. Forfriskninger serveres.
