The Center for PostNatural History is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge relating to the complex interplay between culture, nature and biotechnology. The ‘postnatural’ refers to living organisms that have been altered through processes such as selective breeding or genetic engineering to meet human desires. The mission of the Center for PostNatural History is to acquire, interpret and provide access to a collection of living, preserved and documented organisms of postnatural origin.
The Center for PostNatural History addresses this goal through three primary initiatives:
- The maintenance of a unique catalog of living, preserved and documented specimens of postnatural origin.
- The production of traveling exhibitions that address the PostNatural through thematic and regional perspectives.
- The establishment of a permanent exhibition and research facility for PostNatural studies.
The Center for PostNatural History is made possible in part by the generous funding from the following contributors: The Kindle Project, The Creative Capital Foundation, The Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, Media Arts Fellowships (funded by the Rockefeller Foundation through the Tribeca Film Institute), New York State Council on the Arts and the Schenectady Museum.
