College Quarterly, v8 n2 Spr 2005

This article discusses what has been called the bioart revolution. The author explores some of the common themes and major exhibits of this movement leading him to consider the role of the amateur or outsider engaging in science. The author closes with the case of Steven Kurtz, an artist currently facing 20 years in jail and a quarter of a million dollars in fines for some of his recent works. The prosecution of Kurtz highlights the very real dangers of posing a critical voice in these times of preemptive information collection, management and neutralization. (Contains 1 endnote.)
