Call For Papers

Open call for papers and art work presentations to the interdisciplinary conference "TABOO - TRANSGRESSION - TRANSCENDENCE in Art and Science 2017". Ionian University, Corfu Greece, 26-28 May 2017.

Deadline for proposals: February 28, 2017.

The Department of Audio and Visual Arts of the Ionian University organizes for the second year in a row the interdisciplinary conference "Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science", including theoretical and artwork presentations. The conference continues to focus: a) on questions about the nature of the forbidden and about the aesthetics of liminality - as expressed in art that uses or is inspired by technology and science, b) in the opening of spaces for creative transformation in the merging of science and art.

Art is, in so many ways, a reflection of reality, its glorification as well as its challenger, in an instinctive understanding that nothing is stable despite the effort to keep a balance between the comfort of belief and the delusion of control. Art and science interrelations are not always clear and one could have the impression that the artist seems more permeable to the influence of science than the scientist to the influence of art. This year's conference is dedicated to all those who keep pushing the limits further than the next gadget and understand the essential role of fantasy when synchronized with reality. One step further, one more time, knowing that the truly opening dimension might be towards the voyaging of consciousness.

Submissions are welcome from all art and research fields with emphasis on filmmaking, illustration, video art, sound art / electroacoustic music, photography, animation, videogames, computer art, installation art, performance art, bio art,, electronic art, robotic art and cutting-edge technology in art research.

Suggested, but not exclusive topics, are those associated, with: Chemistry of the mind, natural healers and mind enhancement | Post gender, transgressive identities and social models | Cyborg, augmentation and bοdy modification | Psycho-pharmacology, somatechnology and post-humanism | Human-like machines, uncanny valley and sex technology | Biopunk, hybridity and aesthetics of mutation | Biotechnology, biophysics and music technology.
