Event description

Description

The 7th International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology titled RE:TRACE focuses on an evaluation of the status of the meta-discipline MediaArtHistories today.

Immersed in both contemporary and historiographical aspects of the digital world, we explore the most immediate socio-cultural questions of our time: from body futures, information society, and media (r)evolutions, to environmental interference, financial virtualization, and surveillance. And we do so through a fractal lens of inter- and trans-disciplinarity, bridging art history, media studies, neuroscience, psychology, sociology, and beyond. MediaArtHistories is a field whose theory, methods, and objects of study interweave with and overlay other disciplines.

Keynotes: Martin Kemp (UK), Morten Søndergaard (DK), Ryszard Klusczynski (PL), Wendy Hui Kyong Chun (US) and Sarah Kenderdine (AU).

Panels, posters and keynotes within the following themes will be presented:

  • MediaArtHistories – historiographies and futures of an ever-emerging field
  • Institutional histories of Media Art
  • Media Art & Politics (surveillance, climate, visualizations, etc.)
  • Collecting media art / Media Art market
  • Archiving, preserving and representing Media Art
  • Re-Use of cultural heritage data, including education, learning and research
  • Methodologies and research tools for MediaArtHistories with a focus on Digital Humanities
  • International and local histories and practices of media art
  • (Post-)Colonial experiences and non-Western histories of media art, science and technology
  • Paradigm shift – Digital vs. Post-Digital Theory
  • Alternative histories for Media Art in relation to newly evolving or unexpected fields.
  • Models and perspectives of research fields adapted across traditional disciplinary lines.
  • New symbolic architecture of digital super companies (Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, FB, Google)


Locations: Danube University Krems, Göttweig Abbey, Academy of Sciences (Vienna)
