“Art means total freedom, no algorithms but my own” - an interview with Koen Vanmechelen

Koen Vanmechelen is a contemporary Belgian conceptual artist who is best known for his work ‘Cosmopolitan Chicken Project’, which explored the themes of bio-cultural diversity through the study of a chicken and its genetic ancestor, the red junglefowl. Science and technology play an important role in his art and many critics have explored this relationship. Koen Vanmechelen’s thinking seems to depart from the realms of art, which sets him free to explore his subjects from new and original viewpoints. The Cosmopolitan Chicken Project was a worldwide breeding program, allowing Vanmechelen to study the human-bred creatures, diversity issues and the ethics of his crossbreeding activity.
