Beyond the Lab: The DIY Science Revolution

This exhibition ended on 4 September 2016

Telling the stories of modern day pioneers, Beyond the Lab: The DIY Science Revolution celebrates the everyday innovators around Europe who are taking science into their own hands, with astounding results.

Seven real-life case studies are explored through a combination of objects, images and films, giving you the chance to hear from the DIY scientists themselves about the motivations, methods and applications of their research.

From measuring air pollution in London to the search for new antibiotics in Amsterdam, these ambitious amateurs are having a huge impact and driving real change through their research.

Will you join the DIY science revolution?

Beyond the Lab also features three specially commissioned artworks. Following a three-month residency at Ars Electronica, Anouk Wipprecht, Lucy McRae and Jakob and Lea Illera present works based on their perception of technology in health, medicine and well-being.
