We want to take you back to a wonderful evening, in which we have considered and discussed ‘De Maakbare Mens’.

Do you feel like you are losing grip on your life? You might be pleased to know that in the near future, human lives will be highly pliable to personal taste. Anything will be possible, all thanks to innovations in biotechnology. On Wednesday May 20, 2015, BioArt Laboratories asked members from all corners of the world to imagine a glimpse of that future. The foundation organized a debate on the subject of ‘De Maakbare Mens’, on how we can shape our lives, shape human beings, and manufacture ourselves. It was an evening that centered/focused on ethical questions. As grave as this may sound, it was a very energizing evening, filled with heated discussions.
