CFP - extended to 22nd December
Politics of the Machines: Art and After
15—17 May 2018. Aalborg University Copenhagen.
The question of how the machine impacts and contextualizes artistic production and perception is the overall topic of this conference. It addresses the politics of machines and the ‘inescapable’ technological structures, as well as the critical infrastructures of artistic production in-between human and non-human agency.
Where do experimental and artistic practices work beyond the human / non-human dualisms and into biological, hybrid, cybernetic, vibrant, uncanny, overly material, darkly ecological, critical, (etc.) machines?
We welcome submissions that take a fresh approach to the politics of the machine, and exemplify, analyse and/or contextualize alternative and experimental ontologies and epistemologies of art beyond dualisms.
The conference is realized in collaboration with EVA London, Computer Arts Society, British Computer Society, and DIAS Gallery Copenhagen.
General chairs are Laura Beloff (IT-University Copenhagen) and Morten Søndergaard (Aalborg University).
