On uncomputable practices


Lecture by: Valentina Vuksic

@afo - 1st floor | conference hall

Putting artistic research and practices at work within political contexts is discussed in an informal gathering. In this frame, ‘artistic’ is understood broadly as ‘semi-formal’, ‘unconventional’ or ‘uncomputable’ habits. The discussion begins by presenting an early project for appropriating technical artefacts such as low-level documentation and scientific papers by applying artistic strategies. During the conversation, civil societies, arts, and technologies are distinct categories that outline each sociopolitical embedding. Participants are invited to share (also loosely) related examples and experiences of activating artistic stances outside of arts' contexts. By gathering and walking through specific examples, the capacities and pitfalls of transferring non-standard ways of doing and knowing into real-world scenarios are looked at together.
