Black Box is a joint project by The Cultural Negotiation of Science and the Institute of Genetic Medicine. Opening the door on the inner workings of genetic research, Black Box offers a curated programme of film works inspired by and expanding upon genetic themes. The programme showcases films by artists and researchers involved in a creative and critical engagement with the field of genetic medicine alongside films produced by scientists that provide a fascinating insight into the research that takes place within the Institute.


What possible genetic futures can we imagine? Is life a material that we can shape? Does identity begin with the body? Is kinship more than family?

Black Box explores these and other questions over four themed weeks of short film in our pop-up cinema at the Institute of Genetic Medicine.

Black Box is free and open to all. Click here to view the full programme.
