Uncommitted Crime

Ceci n’est pas un arme / Dit is geen Kalashnikov, by Art van Triest

Bullet-proof skin, parasitic textiles, real spiders and a work of art that enters zones of illegality. Quartair opens the season with an exhibition that puts the visitor to the test: Uncommitted Crime, how art and biotech affect us.

Zelf je eigen laboratoriumkunst, Adam Zaretsky

Uncommitted Crime shows works that have never been on display in The Hague before: contemporary art that owes its existence, directly or indirectly, to recent technological and scientific developments. The artists in the exhibition are working with scientists, put our gut feelings to the test and reflect critically on what (bio-) technological developments mean for our bodies and lives.
