TTT2020: Call for papers and artwork presentations

Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science 2020

Deadline for proposals: March 31, 2020

26-28 November 2020, University of Applied Arts Vienna, Austria

The fourth international conference "Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science", supported by the Department of Audio & Visual Arts of the Ionian University since its beginning in 2016, will take place November 26–28, 2020, in Austria, hosted by the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Including theoretical and art practice presentations, TTT2020 continues to focus (a) on questions about the nature of the forbidden and aesthetics of liminality as expressed in art that uses or is inspired by technology and science, and (b) on the opening of spaces for creative transformation in the merging of science and art.

“As we experience and even endorse a gradual, but substantial, de-centering away from anthropocentric values and ontologies, critique potentially harbors turmoil. Art practices pose critical questions about our certainties; sciences and humanities constantly test our limits and our ideas of worlds by pushing forward the conditions in which knowledge is produced. Developments in science and technology that seem to enhance the borders of our experience of worlds and selves, revealing sometimes the fragility of social values, should be contemplated. Identities, ideologies, multiplicities, worlds, and visions are accepted and rejected, invented and destroyed: what are the forces behind and beyond?”

Submissions are welcome from all art and research fields and cutting-edge technology in arts-based research. Suggested, but not exclusive topics, are those associated with: Biopunk, hybridity and aesthetics of mutation; Cyborg, augmentation and bοdy modification; Post-gender, transgressive identities and social models; Psychopharmacology, somatechnology, and post-humanism; Chemistry of the mind, natural healers, and mind enhancement; Biotechnology, DIYbio, and biohacking; Ethology, human and nonhuman; Evolution, genetics, and extended evolutionary synthesis; Cyber-eroticism, sex technology, and techno-lust; Biopolitics, displacement, and resistance.


Deadline for proposals: March 31, 2020
