Alt lab is a non-disciplinary research laboratory dedicated to artistic-scientific research and implementation of interdisciplinary projects. Alt lab fills the gap between the raised awareness of environmental changes and the Anthropocene, artistic practices, scientific experiments, and daily habits around our kitchens. People in the lab share their knowledge, de-mystify scientific experiments, and sophisticated artistic mythos. We invite artists and researchers to join the lab. We seek those who are engaged in non-disciplinary activities that require access to laboratory equipment and artistic, scientific, and technological knowledge.


The lab is operated in collaboration with the Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists’ Association.
