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).
Bill Viola. Rinascimento elettronico a Firenze / Electronic Renaissance in Florence
[ITA] Bill Viola cattura tempi rivelatori di vite segrete, spiriti che si amalgamano con il medium artistico, quasi collabora in maniera intima con lo spettatore. Viola trascende il significato della vita mettendo in scena l'invisibile e il sublime e facendo dialogare il materiale con l'immateriale. Viola crea un'alleanza profonda tra movimento ed assenza di fronte al mondo, come una ricerca dell'individualità che pone il sé in una posizione di consapevolezza.

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 ...
From Siri to sexbots: Female AI reinforces a toxic desire for passive, agreeable and easily dominated women
Source: Salon A recent article titled “Why is AI Female?” made the connection that gendered labor, in service professions in particular, is fueling our expectations for gendered AI assistants and service robots. Furthermore, the author argues, this “feminizing — and sexualizing — of machines” signals a future with a disproportionate use of feminized VR and robots for a male-dominated sex industry. Monica Nickelsburg writes: “Sex with robots is a big leap from asking Siri to set an alarm, but...

How ‘Maintainers,’ Not ‘Innovators,’ Make the World Turn
Source: TheAtlantic.com New technologies and their inventors are often celebrated as society’s heroes. Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Larry Page: These are all contemporary “innovators” whose “visionary ideas” and “creative leaps” led to “disruptive realities”—that is, if you buy the rhetoric of certain books and novelty-oriented publications (including, sometimes, your very own CityLab). But those who’ve questioned whether technology really is society’s salve aren’t alone. Lee Vinsel,...
Hail the maintainers
Source: aeon Innovation is a dominant ideology of our era, embraced in America by Silicon Valley, Wall Street, and the Washington DC political elite. As the pursuit of innovation has inspired technologists and capitalists, it has also provoked critics who suspect that the peddlers of innovation radically overvalue innovation. What happens after innovation, they argue, is more important. Maintenance and repair, the building of infrastructures, the mundane labour that goes into sustaining funct...
Towards the Third Life
Humans also developed a wide range of artefacts, machines, entities that are quickly becoming more and more powerful, complex, autonomous, and independent. These could be defined to a certain extent as “living entities”, expanding the idea of life and of life forms. All this processes seem pushing forward the human biological, cultural, technical boundaries. How do they happen? Where are technologies based on? Can these processes give any glimpses on a possible evolution?
