ABOUT THE NEUROART EXHIBITION


For the next exhibition (date / venue to be announced soon), NEUROART will be looking for proposals for artwork from neurodivergent artists that will explore the following:

The exhibition will focus on the relationship between neuroscientists and their subject of study. Within the discourse of biomedicine, neurodiversity is often represented as a "disorder" that needs to be cured, a view that reflects the prevailing pathology paradigm approach to neuroscientific research. Within this pathology paradigm, the voices of neurodivergent individuals are lost. Who are these anonymous people who have turned into biological material for research? The exhibition will take a critical approach toward this anonymity, the lost relationship between scientists and their subject of study which has turned into a “pathologized object”. It offers a creative angle for looking at the ethics of scientific research, in particular when humans are at stake. 

Artists will have the opportunity to work with neuroscientific researchers to make artwork. More information about the researchers, facilities, and technology on offer for collaboration will be available on the website soon. 

APPLYING AS A NEUROSCIENTIFIC RESEARCHER
