Art Takes on Ethics
Nora Vaage reviews 'Trust Me, I'm an Artist', an exhibition organized in cooperation with the Waag Society at Zone2Source's Het Glazen Huis in Amstelpark, in the outskirts of Amsterdam. The artworks: challenge, stretch, and provoke ideas about the ethical complexities of emerging (bio)technologies. From masks grown from skin cells to dress patches containing gene-edited E. coli bacteria, the works give us new grounds for reflection on ethics, trust, and responsibility in science, society and art.

The explorations in the exhibition have taken place through a play on the format of 'the ethics committee'. In university contexts, particularly within medicine and the natural sciences, researchers need to submit their proposals to ethics committees to check whether their proposed projects comply with the relevant ethical guidelines, and to point to any issues the researchers hadn't thought of.
