Subject: Philosophy of Art Today, International Conference, Moscow, Nov. 27-29th 
 
International Conference Philosophy of Art Today, Moscow, November 27-29th, 2014 
 
Organized by the Polytechnic Museum and Art Foundation Moscow Biennale. 
 
Venue: State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts. 
 
What would a systematic philosophy of art look like today - in an epoch of technological transformation and establishing close relationships of artists and curators with the specific scientific fields of expertise? 
Given the dispersion of the arts, the multiplicity of their practices and technologies, and their shifting institutional and socio-historical frameworks, is such a thing at all feasible? What is the interrelation of the classical art history with the new media, technological and scientific art? A philosophy that takes its point of departure in the specificity of the arts, or even attempts to develop its concepts out of the encounter with singular artworks, may risk losing sight of the general issues of the contemporary world, which could be solved by approaching philosophy of technology and science. On the other hand, theories starting from concepts that seem to promise universality, such as judgment, or the idea of a specificity of aesthetic experience, often end up in general claims that have little connection to the arts and artworks. If such a philosophy, which would bring together the universal and the particular, were at all possible, from where would it draw its tools and concepts? Consider the ontological status of art, technology and science in general as poly-structural system? And how would it locate itself in relation to our own historical moment, and to the problem of the historicity of concepts, which seems to foreclose definitions that are not themselves part of the historically changing forms of art? 
 
Speakers include: Oliver GRAU (Austria/Germany), Timothy DRUCKREY (US), Nina MÖNTMANN (Germany), Erkki HUHTAMO (Finnland, US), Alexander GARCIA-DUTTMANN (Germany), Matthew KENYON (US), Maria LIND (Sweden), Olga KISSELEVA (Russia), Christopher FYNSK (US, UK), Sven-Olov WALLENSTEIN (Sweden), Irina ARISTARKHOVA (Russia/US), Joseph BACKSTEIN (Russia).

The conference is supported by the Embassy of France and the Embassy of Finland in Russia. 
 
Polytechnic Museum in Moscow is one of the oldest science museums in the world and the biggest museum of science and technology in Russia. A large-scale state-level innovative program of the Polytechnic Museum modernization was started in 2010. In the framework of the project a principally new museum and educational centre comprising the greatest scientific, technical and societal achievements based on the advanced museum technologies will be constructed by 2018. In 2014 Polytechnic Museum launched of the Polytech.Science.Art program, dedicated to one of the most significant phenomenon of contemporary culture - interdisciplinary collaboration between artists, scientists and technology specialists. The program started with a series of workshops and lectures of international and Russian experts, and will be developed in the following years through exhibitions, artist-in-residency program, conferences and special projects. It is curated by Natalia Fuchs (MediaArtHistories, Donau Universität/Cultural Management, University of Manchester), she is also in charge of interdisciplinary projects of the Polytechnic Museum. 
 
Moscow Biennale is one of the most representative events in the sphere of contemporary art and culture in Eastern Europe. The last edition of Moscow Biennale curated by Catherine de Zegher took place on September 
20 – October 20, 2013. In previous years Moscow Biennale was curated by Nicolas Bourriaud, Rosa Martinez,  Iara Boubnova, Daniel Birnbaum, Hans at offering not only an important visual experience but also a space for discussions and theoretical research. Therefore talks, conferences and symposiums are an integral part of its program. Among the speakers of this philosophical conference in previous years were such distinguished scholars as Giorgio Agamben, Jacques Rancière, Saskia Sassen, Christoph Menke and many others.
