Il Ritmo dello Spazio / Le Rythme de l’Espace / The Rhythm of Space
La recente rilevazione delle onde gravitazionali derivanti dalla fusione di buchi neri e/o stelle di neutroni che producono vibrazioni nello spazio-tempo, consente di aggiungere il “ritmo” o, in un certo senso, il “suono” dello spazio alla millenaria concezione e rappresentazione dell’Universo come immagine sublime ma silenziosa, invitando a profonde riflessioni sul rapporto dell‘uomo con il Cosmo, la Terra, la Società.

Oocyte Aesthetic, Human Design and Mission Creep
The admixture of global interspecies variety through genetic engineering and the cloning of spectacular hereditary cascades should only be approved through an aesthetic advisory commission made up of artists, art historians and oﬀ-the-locus aesthetics specialists.

What is real, and how are you sure it is so? How can you determine which experiences are "real" if they are digital, virtual or influenced by the chemistry and architecture of your brain?

From Automata to Robotics
International Workshop. Lisbon, March 28-29, 2019 Call For Papers Bald, and with a pretty face, the robot Sophia came into our lives. Derived from science fiction literature, films and theatre (R.U.R robot of Čapek), humanoids are now a reality. By mimicking the gestures, behaviour, the way of speaking and interactions of humans, robots, androids, cyborgs, avatars as avant-garde of technology still cause surprise and evoke uncanny reactions. They have deep roots in ancient self-moving a...

MATTER(S) matter(s): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences
With their shared interests in materiality and topical issues—the dual “matters” invoked in the exhibition title—the artists in the exhibition reveal an “epistemological turn” in the arts and sciences, focusing on how knowledge is produced and how the process of production inflects meaning and interpretation. This major presentation highlights how artists and scientists work together to imagine the future, today.
