The interdisciplinary conference “Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence” focuses on questions about the nature of the forbidden and the liminal as expressed in science and art. Arts apply critical questions to our certainties, and it is not a coincidence that in the last decades so many artists have focused on the human body as their primary medium for investigation. Limits are continuously put to test as contemporary scientific experimentation pushes forward our idea of the world, in quest for answers but also for solutions allowing us to overcome the problems present in our lives. Progress in fields such as the human genome editing, the creation of cyborgs and any human-like artificial intelligence, are only few examples presently generating double-edged questions on the nature of humanity.
