In her Ph.D project, Lotte Pet researches art as a means to gain knowledge within scientific and technological discourse. Specifically, she focuses on the onto-epistemological force of bioart and to what extent it can expand theoretical limitations of the frameworks developed by new biopolitics and posthumanism to enable consequential activity in decision-making processes within daily life.
