- Microbe workshops in Copenhagen 1-3/10/2021

We look forward to spending time together with all of you. The workshop will revolve around exploring the microbial life in our bodies through cooking together, looking at artworks, making public events, having fun and much more.  For this microbes-workshop-weekend in Copenhagen Emil Krog would love to introduce some chunks of thinking and art-making from the historic trends of Vitalism that vibrated through art, culture and science in the 18th and 19th century.  The scientific theory of vitalism was an attempt to attribute a sudden life force or spirit to all living organisms. It has been disproven when organic molecules were artificially synthesised and has been put on the shelf in the world of science. As a co-evolving group we can experiment around with some of these ideas and combine it with our overarching theme being the life of the marvellous microbes.
