Check out the BAD Award winners

7 June, 2022

A ‘filthy’, inclusive anatomy book by Kuang-Yi Ku and Henry de Vries (AmsUMC/GGD), a new intuitive way of sensing and communicating with the world by Marlot Meyer and Marcel de Jeu & Jos van der Geest (Erasmus MC), and the resurrection of the mythical Zeeland goddess Nehalennia who can help us live with mud and flood instead of fighting it by design studio Nonhuman Nonsense and Marte Stoorvogel (NIOZ).

These are the winning projects proposed by 3 collaborating teams of artists/designers and scientists of the eleventh international Bio Art & Design (BAD) Award, which were selected last week in Eindhoven. They each receive €25.000 to develop their proposal and create an installation that will be exhibited at the end of this year at MU Hybrid Art House.

BAD Award

The yearly Bio Art & Design (BAD) Award aims to stimulate emerging designers and artists to delve into the world of bio art and design, and produce new multidisciplinary work. This can encompass numerous fields – from sustainability, food and health, to biotechnology, horticulture, and agriculture, from new materials to ethics and from molecules to the universe and every bio entity in-between, natural and synthetic. 

As of 2022, the BAD Award is made possible and will be supported by an all Eindhoven based collaborative consortium of cultural partners: BioArt Laboratories, Dutch Design Foundation, MU Hybrid Art House, and Next Nature Network.
