This two seminars are part of the Next Society, Art and Science Programm. Expect to continue with the questions we have been dealing till now: the surpassing of Modern forms of perception; the expansion of traditional ideas on attention; the new relations art is establishing with new forms of intelligence etc. 

  • Become familiar with some of the notions that shape science and technology today: singularity, speed, consciousness, interaction, etc
  • Become aware that art is part of a discourse that historically did always related to science projects, with the research dia conditions, materials, information, language and knowledge
  • Explore the possibility of new ways of framing artistic practice and interest in nature, human condition and technology
  • Become an introduction on subjects that are of great interest for the future of art and culture
  • Students are expected to be an active part of this discussion
