Does It Matter? Composite Bodies and Posthuman Prototypes in Contemporary Performing Arts
14 January, 2015
We are pleased to announce the conference program for "Does It Matter? Composite Bodies and Posthuman Prototypes in Contemporary Performing Arts", that will take place on 17 - 19 March 2015, jointly organised by research centre S:PAM (Studies in Performing Arts & Media) at Ghent University (Belgium) and art centres Vooruit and CAMPO. The program is now open for registration.
In this international conference, we take as a point of departure a posthumanist perspective on the performing arts. We adopt the notion of a posthuman community as an entangling mesh of interdependent objects, technologies and beings as the basic constellation of a performance context.
Confirmed keynote speakers include Mylène Benoit, Maaike Bleeker, Matthew Causey, Peter Eckersall, André Lepecki, Jean Paul Van Bendegem and Kris Verdonck.
