Save the date: DARK WEEKends - Art & Science festival - 21 - 29.10.2023

Scientific and artistic research is not always enlightening. Sometimes, it can be experimental and dark. Moral boundaries are explored and challenged in the process, but this usually takes place behind closed doors. 

 For their first Art & Science festival, entitled DARK WEEKends, GUM & Botanical Garden are putting these dark sides of art and science in the spotlight, from 21 October to 29 October 2023.


Themes from the dead body and forensic medicine to war & conflict, experimental research and moral dilemmas will be explored in depth in talks, workshops, performances, art installations, tours, films and more. 

 Save the date: Saturday 21 October to Sunday 29 October.

The programme will go online in September.
