Program Autumn 2014/Spring 2015

Clouds, Blindsight: The entanglement
«If you fake the funk your nose will grow»*

This somewhat strange title reflects this academic year’s Academy Lectures and takes on traces from the last two years, but this year focusses more on following practices, tendencies and concerns between art, science and knowledge. What is the synergy between culture and nature? Material and network? Knowledge and power? Body and space? Technology and subjectivity?

Does art produce its own kind of “knowledge” and is that necessarily critical or material? What happens with these dynamics?

Neither nature nor culture are ahistorical or timeless: Narratives and language intervene with matter.

Why is it important to look, taste, touch, play and entangle this in our networked, cloudy times while we are transformed and are transforming our ecosystem and technology?
