This issue inaugurating the fall season aims to reflect and expand on the concept of biodiversity in nowadays' visual arts. Trying to expand the notion of biodiversity, it means in a way thinking on it as a growth of ecosystem productivity, where each species has an important role to play. From technology, the AI, the "molecular turn", etc—all essential players within a huge number of artists productions. Spanning from different researches and approaches all artists involved in this issue, titled "Ultra Bodies Ultra Species", are designing a new scenario of the art world.
