Institutional Critique to Hospitality: Bio Art Practice Now. A critical anthology, documents new directions in contemporary art practice and theory with regard to Bio Art. 13 texts, out of which 11 were especially commissioned for the book, document a transition in Bio Art in the context of contemporary art practice towards notions and matters concerned both with the critique of art institutions as well as the notion of ‘Hospitality’ as the latter becomes written into art theory and history departing from the essays and philosophical strivings of Derrida for a philosophy of life.
