October 26, 2012. 09.00-18.00.

“Performing Exhibitions: Displaying Digital Art and Media” is a seminar exploring exhibition, curation, and performative practices in digital art and mixed media. How does digitally-mediated art engage human actors, embodied agents, and sensory input? What factors influence exhibition and curation choices when displaying innovative art, technology and media forms? How do media artists work to enhance and/or perform liveness and human sensation? What questions do researchers explore when working with the aesthetics of techno-human interfaces? These are the questions we will examine. Featured speakers include an International range of artists, curators, researchers, and scientists working across disciplines and media contexts.
