The project Octopus Encounters features a series of explorations and collaborations staged by artists, scientists and curators, that attempt to bring us closer to octopuses. They have been initiated by Okto-Lab — an international interdisciplinary research lab established by scholars from the University of Tasmania (Australia) and the University of Kassel (Germany) — and are presented in collaboration with GLASMOOG at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne (Germany). Okto-Lab and GLASMOOG invite you to immerse yourself into the world of octopuses.
