Impulsat des del grup de recerca GRECS dels Estudis d’Arts i Humanitats el seminari es centrarà en analitzar els punts de connexió i les tensions que es donen entre el món de l’art contemporani i les pràctiques artístiques vinculades tant als nous descobriments científics com als desenvolupaments tecnològics més innovadors.

Una breu bio del professor Shanken: Edward A. Shanken writes and teaches about the entwinement of art, science, and technology with a focus on interdisciplinary practices involving new media. He is a researcher at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and a member of the Media Art History faculty at the Donau University in Krems, Austria.
