Considering the crossed relationship between art and science research, Hangar has developed a specific context for biological exploration. On one hand, it develops projects that occupied the biotechnological techniques as a research mean and use the appropriation of organic materials as an artistic resource to question the processes and achievements in the field of Biotechnology. On the other hand, Hangar carries out projects which develop collaborative and interdisciplinary knowledge production in the intersection of art and biotechnology, from a critical perspective and using open and accessible tools. In line with open source philosophy, Hangar pays attention to the development of different ways of sharing knowledge, technologies and methods.
