KONTEJNER | bureau of contemporary art praxis, founded in 2002, is an independent not-for-profit organisation which, through curatorial work, the production of artworks, the organisation of exhibitions and theoretical contextualization, is oriented towards critical examination of the role and meaning of science, technology and the body in contemporary society.
KONTEJNER is interested in intermedia and interdisciplinary art projects at the junctions of science, technology, live art, body art, hybrid and formally innovative usage of the media. These are projects referring to relevant phenomenon of contemporary art and culture, dealing with societal taboos and ethical systems that legitimise them, with special emphasis on the field of trauma produced by breaking and subverting the norms. Also, it is art which deals with society of the future, the posthuman and its obsolete body, intervention by cybernetics, nanotechnology, biotechnology, etc.
