About  Meta.Morf

Meta.Morf 2024 – Trondheim Biennale for Art and Technology is an international gathering initiated and organized by TEKS – Trondheim Electronic Arts Centre. The biennale explores the intersections between art, technology, and science, aiming to showcase cutting-edge projects and critical ideas that develop new outlooks and offer unique perspectives on our technologically entangled lives.

Since its establishment in 2010, Meta.Morf has grown into the most extensive biennale for art and technology in Scandinavia. The latest edition in 2024 presents 60 participants spanning 25 partner organizations, and for the first time, expands its program internationally with a program in the Netherlands.

Artistic and scientific research continuously challenge and change our perspectives on life, often leading to new philosophical and existential questions. Biotechnology, nanotechnology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and new communication and computer technologies are some of the fields that push the boundaries of artistic practice, contributing to alternative approaches to scientific problems and technological developments.

The artist, as a conveyor and interpreter of new knowledge and research, plays a crucial role in society’s ability to critically reflect and engage in discussions about new technologies, and scientific advancements.

Through a variety of artistic perspectives and curatorial approaches Meta.Morf presents artists, writers, scientists, and researchers that extend our understanding of contemporary socio-political, technological, and cultural developments.
