Since spring 2020 Art Laboratory Berlin and BioClub Tokyo have been arranging online meetings between hybrid artists and associates in our respective cities and beyond. These meetings are a forum for exchange of research, practice and solidarity in times of crises.

In our 13th meeting of VIRAL CLOUD | Berlin Tokyo we are welcoming two scientists from Berlin and Tokyo exchanging ideas and approaches on art and science collaborations.
