This will be the fifth year of Print Screen, Israel's International Digital Culture Festival. Just as the "PrintScreen" function captures a screenshot of a computer, so too does the festival capture a contemporary screenshot of life in the epoch of new media.
The festival draws together artists, technologists and digital culture researchers for four days of programming at the Holon Cinematheque in Holon, Israel. Print Screen includes a wide variety of films, contextual programming, interactive presentations, master classes with international artists, workshops, lectures and panel discussions.
In 2014, more than 2,000 participants took part of the screenings and activities. Notable guests included Evan Roth (US), Johannes Grenzfurthner (AU), Julian Oliver (DE/NZ) and Yossi Vardi (IL). More at [www.printscreenfestival.com] .
About the video program:
The theme for 2015’s Print Screen festival is "Hypersensitive:" an examination of if and how digital technologies change our sensitivity toward one another and the world around us. Questions explored will include those ranging from the more literal -- What added senses does technology provide us, and what are their limitations? Does a technologically-heightened sensibility lead to added sensitivity? -- to the more theoretical: How does technology impact emotions? How does technology change our awareness toward the social injustices and global concerns?
This is the second year that Print Screen will explore this theme through a curated program of video works. In our first year we received over one-hundred and fifty submissions and exhibited the works of nineteen international artists.
Submissions must be works that are 10 minutes or under. Works will be selected according to their merit, complexity and depth of the concept. Works that touch on the following themes related to “Hypersensitive” will be especially considered:
Senses: Heightened, Modified, Manipulated
The Transhuman and his emotional states
Sensitivity toward one another through the use of technology
Emotional computing and programming
To submit work: Submissions may be made through the Print Screen Entry Form: [goo.gl] , in English or Hebrew. A new entry form is required for each submission. Deadline for submission is April 15, 2014
Selection Notification: Early May 2015 Exhibition: May 27th-30th, 2015
Telefónica R+D and LABoral organise NEXT THINGS 2015 – CONDUCTA, the Fourth Global Art & Technology Challenge. Open to creators worldwide, it pursues innovative and breakthrough ideas on the Internet of Things in the context of art and technology.
Submission deadline: April 17, 2015
The goal of the challenge is to bring together art and technology, artists with technologies, and to unleash the huge potential of mixing the creativity and perspective of artists with the nowadays powerful open hardware technologies.
Telefonica R&D and LABoral are seeking researchers/artists/designers who are working on artistic and research projects exploring the modulation of human behavior in groups of people through new technologies, particularly ideas and techniques involving data mining and pattern recognition, machine learning, collective group behavior and wearable technologies and biometric data and similar.
It is important to reflect on these frameworks and to explore the impact that the Internet of Things, and Interactions Machine to Machine (M2M) can have on the lives of people, on a scale that spans from individual to whole societies.
It will be appreciated in the proposals:
–That may be converted in manufactured objects, employed by people and societies
–Connected wirelessly to the Internet
The call is open to all creators in the space between art and technology. Basic ability to build the project on your own, with occasional support from Telefónica R&D and LABoral, is required: knowledge of open hardware platforms such as Arduino and general programming skills.
NEXT THINGS 2015 is looking for ideas that can be prototyped and built within the course of six months, based on open hardware platforms such as Arduino connected to the Internet.
The selected project will be awarded with a six-month artist fellowship, split between LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial (through Plataforma 0. Production Centre) in Gijón for two months and Telefónica R&D (Telefonica’s technology research and development arm) in Barcelona for four months. The goal of the fellowship is to enable the fellow to bring the chosen idea to life. The fellowship will start the latest, on June 1, 2015.
The artist will receive 12,000 euros gross as fees and a grant of up to 2,000 euros gross for travel, accommodation and expenses at LABoral.
Please send a one-page idea proposal, a one-page visual description and a CV in PDF format to email@example.com before April 17 2015. The proposal should outline the project and describe—on a high level—the building blocks required to make it.

REVERSE is pleased to present MYTH AND MUTATIONS, curated by Chris Romero. MYTH AND MUTATIONS features six artists that combine symbols of the past with subject matter found in contemporary culture including emojis, memes, video games, and consumer products. The artists demonstrate that mythologies forever transform, coalesce, and split into new allegories. However, as these allegories undergo certain metamorphic changes, they acquire a close relation to present-day desires, fears, truths, and morals. On display is a diverse range of mediums including video installation, animation, illustration, and 3D printed sculpture.
The Open Set 2015 edition under the theme ‘Experience: Moment, Stage, Memory’ examines creative strategies of staging new experiences and their capability to provoke and influence the construction of individual and collective identities.
Experience may be appropriated as a product by itself or a tool to manipulate and discipline society by influencing the actions and choices of the masses. Paradoxically, this term can be understood also as a facilitator helping to distinguish the value of an individual experience from the established behavioural patterns. In other words new experience can stimulate a sense of individual (self) recognition, as well as collective belonging. It acts as provocateur to spark critical and creative thinking and making, and is an essential instrument towards social innovation. The above-described opposite effects of staged experiences can be equally observed in communication and cultural practices, education, urban planning, economical and marketing strategies, all being supported by fast technological growth.
What creates the fundamental difference in the effect is the goal, context and methodology of creating new experiences. This is the very focus of the Open Set investigation in 2015 and 2016, which aims to look at the design discipline as an experiential one within the larger cultural context. During these events, the international group of participants will reflect on the ethics and experiment with the strategies of how to stage new experiences (moments) and incorporate them in the gathered and shared experiences (memories) of the community. The program identifies four inter-related angles of research: Body, Environment, Interaction and Medium.
TUTORS AND SPEAKERS
This year we invite artists, designers and researchers to contribute to the event with simultaneous workshops, public interventions, film-screenings and lectures, representing various kinds of expertise as: graphic, speculative and critical design, curating, participatory design and art, performance art, interactive and wearable design, urban and cultural studies, theory and research.

What makes an artist? What makes him or her creative, going beyond technique? The answer is profoundly simple, the ability to be inspired, able to live spontaneously in the context of the character and the play(….).Real thoughts are simple, personal, profound, they come from what you sense and feel. They are more spontaneous. They are not correct, or intellectualized, and mechanical. Recognizing the difference, you think like a human being, putting yourself into the character’s shoes.

Délai de candidature: 30/04/2015 La Cité internationale des Arts a pour vocation d’accueillir des artistes professionnels qui souhaitent développer un travail artistique en France. La Fondation est reconnue d'utilité publique par décret du 14 septembre 1957. La Fondation accueille des artistes professionnels venus du monde entier. Elle a reçu plus de 15 000 artistes depuis son ouverture en 1965.

Bewerbungsfrist: 30.04.2015 Wettbewerb „Kreativsonar“ sucht ideenreiche Unternehmer/-innen aus Saarland und Rheinland-Pfalz

The Institut des hautes études en arts plastiques (Iheap) is a French post-graduate institute for research and experimentation in art that serves as the educational branch of the Biennale de Paris. Iheap offers its participants a unique course of study that is not bound to the history of 20th century art but actively encourages the investigation of crucial issues of art in the 21st century, an ongoing history in which our students, known as sessionists, will inevitably help write.
Iheap is open to all creative practitioners who have an expectation to engage not only within the art world, but also with the world at large. Artists encouraged to apply are those who consistently question the limits of their singular artistic practice or professional activity, especially those who desire to break free from the often-alienating pedagogy of the art school environment.
Iheap is seeking applicants who reject art as it is often routinely practiced in fixed academic programs and whom acknowledge that experimental conditions are essential for the creation of art that is both challenging and intimate. Iheap moves and composes itself within a multitude of environments. It is a fluid school with no fixed structure, either pedagogically or geographically; each class takes place at a different location.
Course of study
Each session is completed over two years, two days a week. The first year sessionists engage in artistic practice, informed by a broad scope of theoretical orientations. The second year is given over to the development of an activity report and the presentation of a special project, with the purpose of demonstrating the maturation of each participant’s research.
The hope is that Iheap New York will, in its own way, reinforce contemporary French-American relations, as well as the historical links between these two singular cities, which have each played a key role in shaping the history of art. The possibility for students to actively engage in exchanges, or “residencies abroad”, between New York and Paris.
The application fee is 70 Dollars. Tuition is 9000 Dollars for two years of study.
Upon completion, Iheap confers a French post-graduate diploma that is research based, usually awarded after a masters or in conjunction with a doctoral degree. Participants may be enrolled in a parallel course of study while attending Iheap. Eligible candidates are not, however, required to hold a prior degree.
The application procedure is online, accessed at [iheap.fr]
Deadline for submission is April 20, 2015.

What is vision? seeing the unseen –Monologues for Orpheus
Monologues for Orpheus is a modern adaptation of the story of Orpheus. Using an original script penned by poet Robert Kelly, Crichton Atkinson spins a hyper-hypnotic visual display that transfixes the audience much like Orpheus’ lyre did Hades and his beasts.
The myth of Orpheus tells the danger of looking back. Atkinson’s retelling examines notions of authorship, the self, language and desire while using video as a tool that both records the past and, via her unique digital manipulation, looks toward the future.
Biography Crichton Atkinson is a director and performer. Her work has been shown in New York, Los Angeles, Denver, Pittsburg, Santa Fe, Shanghai and London. She has performed at The New Museum, Dia:Beacon and Performa. Atkinson’s theater work has been funded by the Lower Manhattan Culture Council and shown in Denver at the Denver Center for Performing Arts, in London at the Finborough Theatre and in New York at The Public Theater, HERE, Magic Future Box, The SVA Theater and The Paradise Factory. Her work has been covered by The New York Times, The New Yorker, NY1, NBC, Artforum and The Independent. Atkinson’s videos have been shown at Nothing Space, N2NM, The Tea Factory, Space Witch and 331 Gallery.
Provisional: Having the nature of a temporary arrangement made to meet special circumstances and intended to last only as long as these circumstances last. (Oxford dictionary)
Opposing the historical mapmaking of cartography, Provisional is a temporary route drawn outside of the traditional grid. Working directly from maps, Christine Mackey traces the international borders of the Americas onto various lengths of scotch tape that are then applied to the gallery walls at random. By adopting the concept of the ‘rhizome’ as a process of de-territorialisation and de-stabilization, Mackey’s site-specific installation usurpes the norms of topology and catrography.
Biography Christine Mackey is an independent studio-based artist at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre (Ireland). Her research-based practice is rooted in environmental concerns and the development of meaningful participation working across a range of disciplines and site-specific contexts. Mackey graduated with a practice-based PhD at the University of Ulster (Belfast, 2012). She has participated in a range of national and international residency programmes including AIR Rejmyre Art Lab (Sweden, 2014), Killruddery House and Gardens/Mermaid Arts Centre (Wicklow, 2014), Art & Sustainability (Cambridge School of Art, 2013) and ArtLink (Ireland, 2013-2014). Recent solo exhibitions include SEED MATTER (Limerick City Gallery of Art, 2013), Labor on … as if (Draoicht Arts Centre, 2013) and Living Fields (Leitrim Sculpture Centre, 2012). Mackey has been a receipt of Individual Artists Bursary awards from the Arts Council of Ireland, Leitrim County Council and Culture Ireland.
Ubiquitous object, Ambiguous Things – Resisting Disappearance is derived from the empty space found in clearplastic packaging. The transparent form of the empty vacuum package is both an object in itself and an echo of the commodity it once encased. In this exhibition, Julie Shiels attempts to reproduce the empty space left behind by consumption.
The voids in these ready-made molds have been amplified and transposed using two ephemeral materials: light and dried plaster. Shiels uses a combination of photograms and loose caste objects to visualize a trash item in a way that can be perceived beyond its status as commodity. The project seeks to reflect on the temporality, the materiality and the mutability of waste.
Biography Julie Shiels has a Masters of Art from RMIT University (2006) and is currently completing a PhD at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia. Julie has exhibited nationally in Australia and internationally. She has undertaken funded residencies at Red Gate Gallery in Beijing, China (2010 Toyota Travel Prize), and Hanoi, Vietnam (1997, Australia Council).
Her work has been acquired by public collections including National Gallery of Australia, State Library of New South Wales, State Library of Victoria, Baillieu Library (University of Melbourne), Australian Embassy, Hanoi, Vietnam, City of Banyule and Port Phillip Art Collections and many private collections.

To escape the identitary cages we are surrounded by, whilst dealing with today’s culture with its complexities, diversity and pervasiveness, a conscious approach to the whole range of music phenomena is fundamental both for curatorial and artistic/music practices and the perception of the habitual music listener.
The module puts forth an approach to music stemming from an analysis of listening, and proposes a series of techniques for music production as well as strategies to deal with music in its broadest acceptation. Specifically, it will trace the consequences of embracing the conceptual frame of cognitive patterns when dealing with the complexities of the evolution of music structures (from the history of Western musical tradition up to the forms and styles of the music practices in today’s media culture).
Alternating discussion of theoretical notions and listening experiences with practical laboratories (production/composition and performing with voice, body-percussion and found objects), the module is suitable for participants with any degree of music knowledge from novice to skilled musician, as no previous knowledge of music theory and music notation are required.
BIOGRAPHY AND STATEMENT
Massimiliano Viel is a composer, musician and researcher. His manifold activities as composer, keyboard player and sound designer brought him to collaborate with ensembles, orchestras and theatres all over the world and with composers such as L. Berio and K. Stockhausen.
Besides the production of scores for acoustic and electronic instruments, from solo works to orchestra pieces, he developed his artistic path around the relationship between music and other media, realizing performances and installations in close contact with theatre, visual arts and dance.
He is member of the Italian collective “otolab”, devoted to audiovisual performance.
He is a professor at Bolzano’s Conservatory (Italy) and PhD researcher at the Planetary Collegium T-Node, University of Plymouth (UK).

An alternative to the traditional educational system, it works in synergy with international academies and public universities. It fosters processes of cross-pollination to investigate the relationship between art and public sphere, focusing on topics like social responsibility, urban transformation, participatory art practices, demopraxy, alternative models of local economic development, sustainability, etc.
Designed for artists, curators, students, social entrepreneurs, cultural project managers, etc., UNIDEE - University of Ideas’ modules put forward a participatory learning experience in a small group setting, through practices, methodologies and tools apt at forging knowledge while fostering relational skills, socially responsible behaviours that value diversity, “effective” horizontal thought processes, and the possibility to “err”, on a quest for new means of expression.
The programme is conceived as a long term endeavour with the mission to be engaging continuously with civil society not only through dialogue and active participation, but also through the (re)localisation of those processes of symbolic identification on the side of the modules’ and residencies’ participants, in Biella as well as in their own original social contexts and groups.
UNIDEE - University of Ideas' Modules for 2015:
UNIDEE - University of Ideas educational programme of weekly modules at Cittadellarte kicks off with its first year on May 4th and runs until November 27th, 2015. Its programme for 2015 sets out to explore three broad concepts: temporality, responsibility, participation (www.cittadellarte.it/unidee). Analysed from a variety of angles (artistic, historical, geographic, philosophical, political, economic, anthropological, sociological, mediological, juridical, architectural, etc.), these three key topics will be unravelled together by participants, mentors and guests, through an exciting blend of formats spanning from the theoretical to the performative. The modules will encompass experiments in art history paradigms, activism, commons, prefigurative politics, territorial transformation, museology, visual narratives, social imagery, relational systems, new rituals, social cooking, urban space exploration, ideas gathering (etc.).
4-8th May, 2015 (DEADLINE: 04.04.2015) Ubiquitous Infoscapes Module curated by Salvatore Iaconesi & Oriana Persico
Ubiquitous Infoscapes combines experiential, theoretical, practice and performance based activities to broaden the participants' understanding and knowledge of the Ubiquitous Infoscape, and culminates in the creation of a small artistic gesture. How do the masses of data and information making up Ubiquitous Infoscapes radically transform both our lives and perception of the world? How do they affect public, private and intimate spaces, our rights, and our approach to knowledge-sharing, learning, expression and communication?
Through lectures, discussions and film screenings focusing on several examples of pedagogical and architectural initiatives attempting to define new operational tools for urban and rural environments, Changing nothing so that everything is different reflects on the idea of the city and its post-industrial evolution in Europe, while questioning the role of artistic practices in gentrification processes. It will apply Beyond Entropy's methodology of “Changing nothing so that everything is different” to analyse Cittadellarte as a possible paradigm for the regeneration of post-industrial cities.
TOPICS/TAGS transformation, city, entropy, tools, collective imagination, responsibility.
18th-22nd May, 2015 (DEADLINE: 18.04.2015) Curating as a form of assembly Module curated by Aria Spinelli Guest: Tullio Brunone (Laboratorio di Comunicazione Militante)
Taking from recent forms of anticapitalist protest and the political imaginaries that have been provoked by temporary occupations of public squares, Curating as a form of assembly focuses on alternative modes of thinking society. Exploring the potentiality of political imaginaries in a contemporary context, it discusses, also through assembly-building sessions, how ‘curating’ in its broadest sense is key to shifting power relations between artists, authors and contexts, specifically through the use of imaginative forms of political emancipation.
25-29th May, 2015 (DEADLINE: 25.04.2015) Patterns and Music Module curated by Massimiliano Viel
Patterns and Music puts forth an approach to music stemming from an analysis of listening, and proposes a series of techniques for music production as well as strategies to deal with music in its broadest acceptation. Alternating discussion of theoretical notions and listening experiences with practical laboratories (production/composition and performing with voice, body-percussion and found objects), it traces the consequences of embracing the conceptual frame of cognitive patterns when dealing with the complexities of the evolution of music structures.
TOPICS/TAGS listening, music perception, pattern composition, history of Western music, performing arts, participation, temporality.

La Fondation Daniel et Nina Carasso soutient depuis sa création des projets portant sur l’éducation artistique parce qu’elle participe, au même titre que les autres apprentissages dits fondamentaux, non seulement à la construction de l’individu mais aussi au développement d’une conscience collective.
La reconnaissance de ce rôle important de l’art et de la culture comme les fondements mêmes de notre société anime également depuis quelques années la politique culturelle des pouvoirs publics ainsi que de nombreuses initiatives du monde associatif et des fondations.

Nous sommes aujourd’hui inquiets face aux transformations de notre environnement et l’apparition de phénomènes nouveaux comme le bouleversement des cycles naturels, le dérèglement de nos systèmes économiques, l’implosion démographique, l’apparition de nouvelles formes de violences, etc. Notre faculté de raisonnement, nos outils techniques, tout comme notre propre expérience ne suffisent pas toujours à appréhender ces évolutions.
Malgré l’énorme flux d’informations qui nous parvient en continu sur ces questions, il devient de plus en plus difficile de comprendre leurs interconnexions. Des vagues d’images de catastrophes naturelles, de mouvements de populations, de crises financières…, nous inondent sans pour autant pouvoir nous offrir une vision lucide sur les situations.
Par ailleurs, force est de constater la quasi absence des humanités dans de nombreuses formations de l’enseignement supérieur qui tend vers la spécialisation et la professionnalisation des cursus, donnant une lecture plus technique que critique pour éclairer ces nouveaux enjeux.

Il est donc recherché, en vue de cette résidence-mission qui va se déployer sur le territoire de la Communauté d’Agglomération Maubeuge-Val de Sambre, un artiste professionnel relevant de tous les formes d’expression (performances, installations, déambulations, parcours urbains, street art...) dont la recherche et la démarche, délibérément inscrites dans le champ de la création contemporaine, sont régulièrement ou ponctuellement traversées par un intérêt pour l’espace public. Plus précisément, la résidence permettra de mettre en avant les questions liées aux espaces d’échange et de cohabitation, aux territoires traditionnellement considérés comme incompatibles avec la création artistique, au détournement de fonctions primaires des lieux, à la distinction entre l’usage conventionnel et les limites permettant d’inclure la performance et l’installation dans l’espace public, modifiant la perception du public dans son environnement immédiat. Le contexte géographique, le patrimoine paysager rural et les modifications historiques de l’urbanisme du territoire de la CAMVS seront autant de champs d’investigation possibles pour cette résidence.

10 day Italian summer program: June 27th to July 7th 2015 International Centre for the Arts at Monte Castello di Vibio Organised by artist Juliette McCullough
Interested art students are invited to participate in the cultural experience of a lifetime by joining an exclusive Italian summer program through the International Centre for the Arts at Monte Castello di Vibio. British artist Juliette McCullough offers a ten day Atelier class with the theme: ‘Figure in the Landscape,’ or, ‘21st century figure within a Medieval Landscape; modern and ancient life seen and studied in relationship. The class will run from June 27th to July 7th 2015
This class offers the opportunity to bring together the surrounding landscape and physical environment of a medieval Italian town with a study of the human figure. After a day of preliminary figure studies in studio we will take our clothed model out of the confinements of the Life Class and into the marvelous settings offered by the intimate spaces of the medieval town of Monte Castello, and, seen against the backdrop of the expansive spaces of the great vistas of the Umbrian landscape.
The aim is to discover the juxtapositioning of the dynamics of a human presence against the spirit of an ancient and enduring Italian landscape. The only walls of our studio class room will be the deeply textured old stone walls of the town, magically weathered, worn and burnished by the touch of humanity, history and the elements for the last nine hundred years.
Open to students of all levels this course will comprise lecture, demonstration, practice and critique, group and individual.
Within the International Center for the Arts the new International Studio School is the heart of the program. The Studio School offers multi-level classes in the visual arts as well as opportunities for uninterrupted studio time and a visiting artist/critics series. Through the Art Centre’s diverse, but integrated program they celebrate the connection between the art of Italy and the rhythms of daily life, believing that the food, wine, and folk traditions of Italy are inseparable from the full experience of its music, literature and paintings. This program creates a truly Socratic environment in which one engages in stimulating conversations and interactions with artists, scholars as well as professionals from every corner of this lovely village including the townspeople. Monte Castello is a perfect example of “civilita” – (civilized life). Perched on its little mountaintop, Monte Castello is home to about 300 residents, most of whom are descended from generations of Montecastelesi. These local people are directly involved in the day-to-day functioning of the school. Overlooking the lush Tiber valley, the village looks much as it did 500 years ago.
The program cost includes full board and tuition and airport transfer. Three traditional Umbrian meals are prepared each day by our cook Illia from fresh, locally grown ingredients. Two day long trips will be scheduled to cities such as Rome, Florence, Assisi, Sienna etc. Program cost: $3000.00
Videotage presents a two-part exhibition by UK artist Chris Shen as part of the FUSE Residency programme.
Operating in the space between technology and art, Chris Shen pursues to re-imagine the language of technology and communication. For the FUSE Residency Shen will present two installation works in two locations that play on the themes of interactivity within the landscape of media consumption.
Part one will present a version of the ongoing series Spectras in the window of Wontonmeen, Prince Edward. Spectra.009 consists of 256 custom manufactured lenticular tiles providing a unique perspective of everyday duality represented through the colours red & blue.
Part two features a continuation of a previous work Rastrum, first exhibited at the V&A Museum in London (2013). This edition titled HKG Transit, features footage filmed from various viewpoints of Hong Kong’s road, rail and ferry systems. The installation sees the cities landscape re-captured and projected at Videotage in the Cattle Depot Artist Village.

Increase and improve the value of the local territory and its natural resources;
Safeguard of historical memory and territorial identity;
Knowledge and development of typical resources of territory;

In response to the upcoming centennial of the U.S. National Park Service (2016) and the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System (2018), Prefigurative Park Services is seeking proposals for new parks and trails, broadly defined, which contribute to its core mission of preserving political possibility and connecting otherwise. PPS is interested in projects that both interrogate the historical meanings of parks and trails and re-imagine their spatial forms, social processes, and emancipatory functions in the twenty-first century, particularly in relation to unfolding ecological and economic crises.
The final form(s) of the larger PPS project as well as the individual contributions remains undetermined and very open. We anticipate a heterogeneous mix of conceptual design proposals, essays, interviews, drawings, maps, tours, audio/video/photo essays, etc. Feel free to contact PPS if you would like to discuss potential forms prior to the deadline. Our goal is to compile these proposals and responses into forms that can be distributed and exhibited for multiple audiences: a comprehensive website; a series of posters that can be printed and exhibited; a guide book containing the proposals along with critical/creative writing on parks and trails.
Who can contribute? Anyone. Artists, geographers, historians, park enthusiasts, park detractors, thru-hikers, day hikers, writers, activists, educators, youth groups, designers, architects, landscape architects, etc. Send us a proposal and let’s talk.
How & When?
Proposals should not exceed 1000 words. Maps and images (drawings, photographs, pictures of models) are encouraged. Please submit your proposals to email@example.com. The deadline for proposals is May 1, 2015, although we recommend you be in touch as soon as possible if you plan to submit a proposal. The tentative deadline for final projects is January 15, 2016.
An open and free workshop series focusing on themes central to art and culture. These enlightening lectures will teach you how to look at art with more confidence and an expanded vocabulary. They will speak about the role seduction plays in choosing what we like. A veritable “scholastic-oracular” presentation that is scholarly and enigmatic, rigorous and rarefied, where key terms in aesthetics are defined in a fluid and luminous language. The goal is to take essential experiences which became occluded in contemporary practice as purely practical matters that can be plugged into our lives to better inform our tastes. Inspiration is drawn from art, philosophy, architecture, and anthropology. The mediator, Dejan Lukic holds a Phd in anthropology from Columbia University and has lectured at numerous universities.

Is it fair to say that superior works of art, literature, philosophy, film, etc., are some kinds of (precise and revelatory) hallucination? To what extent can we address reality itself as hallucinatory? On the other hand, what are the implications of sober hallucination, one that results neither from intoxication nor from any disorder? The Latin root of the term is hallucinari, meaning “gone astray in thought.” Hence, is it not ethically and aesthetically necessary to produce (in this world, our world, gone astray) a work that is equally out of bounds, wandering according to its own impulses? How else can reinvigorated sensations, ideas, and worlds emerge (if not during twilight and dawn)?
