STATE in partnership with Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) are launching a paid Residency Program in Berlin, offering a unique opportunity for artists that are eager to advocate open science and foster a dialogue between a broader public and the science of genome editing.

The program is a two-month open science exchange program with MDC’s CRISPR-Cas9 research groups, designed to give the selected artist hands-on experience at their institute and lab facilities under the umbrella of over-all topic: genome editing research. 

The residency will result in an exhibition at the STATE Studio, Berlin, in October 2018, and is part of the upcoming thematic program STATE of Longevity.
