Politics of the Machines: Art and After

The question of how the machine impacts and contextualizes artistic production and perception is the overall topic of this conference. Recent research on the impact of machines and technology on art places the machine in the centre of ‘ecologies’ (Fuller), ‘archaeologies’ (Parikka) and ‘aesthetics of interaction’ (Kwastek) pointing towards a ‘techno-ontology’ (Broeckmann).

Call for Exhibition: States of Matter

The embodiment of artistic intents in the plastic and figurative forms of representation has been a dramatic moment in the human history defined by revolutionary processes to master matter in terms of colors, shapes, materials and techniques. A New Renaissance brought to practitioners, in this contemporary age, by the enormous availabilities of scientific and technological knowledge together with a change of perspective, in which cross-disciplinary discourses are established between specialized ...

Call for Papers: Art and Education

The relationship between art and education has a long history during which it has acquired various forms that, far from following each other in a linear sequence, coexist and hybridize. Thus, we find different currents in education that advocate the inclusion of art in general schooling with the purpose of fostering personal, intellectual, moral, social (and, of course, professional) development. Furthermore, there have also been artistic projects undertaken in cooperation with certain groups, i...

Swiss Design Network Symposium 2009

The framework of the conference is based on the assumption that the evolution of sciences and technologies, and their impact on society, suggests new research questions that constantly tend to expand the ways to design research - in term of topics of interests, approaches and contaminations - research questions that can be relevant for the design knowledge, practice and education.

Second Life Architecture Awards

The constructed architectural spaces of Second Life share a commonality with the exotic invisible cities of Italo Calvino. They are at once familiar yet completely otherworldly: inverted, fantastical, corrupted, baroque and barren, unexpected, startling and compellingly seductive. They are both our present and our future.
