Art & Science Talk with Annette Moter and Tarsh Bates on Saturday 23 April, 2016

In conjunction with the exhibition The Other Selves. On the Phenomenon of the Microbiome Art Laboratory Berlin hosted a talk with artist Tarsh Bates and PD. Dr. Annette Moter from the Deutsches Herzentrum Berlin.

Tarsh Bates is completing her PhD at the internationally renowned SymbioticA project at the University of Western Australia in Perth. Her work in the exhibition, Surface Dynamics of Adhesion, explores the manifold relationships between Candida and humans. She prepared the artwork for the exhibition at the Biofilm Centre laboratory at the Charité Campus in Berlin-Steglitz.

PD. Dr. Annette Moter is a clinical microbiologist and the head of the Biofilm Center of the Deutsches Herzentrum Berlin, Germany. Research in Dr. Moter’s laboratory is focused on revealing molecular and structural insights into microbial communities in complex medical samples ranging from biofilms in the oral cavity, on heart valves, to wounds and device-associated infections.
