Art & Science Node @ Bio-presence. Art in the Biotechnological World Conference [5/11/2021]Γιάννης Κουκουλάς
Art & Science Node @ Bio-presence. Art in the Biotechnological World Conference
When: 5 November 2021
Where: Academy of Fine Arts, Gdańsk, Department of History and Theory of Art, AUDYTORIUM ASP Gdańsk
The conference Bio-presence. Art in the biotechnological world investigates the presence of various forms of life and its existence in the sphere of artistic practice, especially where it meets the spheres of science and technology. We are interested not only in the forms of such presence, but also in the processes of discovering and transposing them into the discourse of the arts and humanities.
Joanna Hoffmann, Chair of Art & Science Node will present the Networks of Rhizosphere and the Symposium will be also online streamed here
The eponymous presence also suggests changes in terms of distance: on the one hand, it implies proximity (in various dimensions) of that which is biological and its socialisation (depending on the form it takes); on the other hand, it implies remoteness and emancipation, because the bio-element “sets its own rules” and does not wish to be a party to the “business which cannot be turned to its advantage” (B. Latour). This attention paid by the arts and humanities to bio-agents/objects can be interpreted as a search for the relation which has been lost, neglected or rejected.
