2012-02-21 21:16 von leo

The exhibition and a symposium curated by Dimitrij Bulatov from Kaliningrad reveals the technologically unconscious where utopic dreams and apocalyptical visions of the future find their place. The exhibition showcases ideas of a modern post-biological society which are modified and spread over the borders of our reality and identity. Emphasis is given to art works being created with the help of robotics, biomedicine, and nanotechnology within the strict domain of visual arts. The artists strive to discover the source of the modern technological myth which is based on values such as efficacy, control, technological development, and economic influence. Participants include Bill Vorn (Canada), Stelarc, The Tissue Culture & Art Project, Guy Ben-Ary, and Kirsten Hudson(Australia), Andy Gracie, James Auger, and Jimmy Loizeau (UK), Joe Davis (US), Leo Peschta (Austria), Tuur Van Baalen (the Netherlands), Kuda begut sobaki (Russia), Ursula Damm (Germany), and Polona Tratnik (Slovenia).
