A DIYBio fair organized by Biotinkering Berlin, the three-day bio-fair brought together players in the Berlin biohacking scene for a series of hands-on workshops, talks and a special exhibition featuring unique DIY laboratory equipment. The bio-fair focuses on the elusiveness of nature, trying to rebuild the lost connection between humans and the oldest organisms on Earth: bacteria, algae and fungi.
The fairs opened on Friday at 7 PM with a series of presentations by Berlin-based biohackers. The program continued on Saturday 12-8PM and Sunday 12-6PM with workshops and talks on topics ranging from 'bioluminescent bacteria' to 'tempeh fermentation' to 'spectrometry' by Jessica Bernds, Rüdiger Trojok and Alessandro Volpato. It included an exhibition of artworks by Mirela Alistar, Graziele Lautenschlaeger, Fara Peluso and Margherita Pevere and others.
