Digital kunsthistorie og performance

Velkommen til foredrag om digital kunsthistorie og performance av forskningskunstneren Sougwen Chung.

30. september
kl. 19:0020:00

I utstillingen Re.Memory har den canadiske kunstneren Sougwen Chung utforsket samspillet mellom menneske og robot i en visuelt vakker tegneakt, gjennom hennes performance «Memory 20/20». Denne kvelden blir siste mulighet til å oppleve Chungs visuelt slående opptreden. Chung vil også holde en kort presentasjon om sitt kunstnerskap.

Foredrag om digital kunsthistorie 

Etter performancen vil vi ha et digitalt foredrag (live fra London) med V&A Curator Melanie Lenz og grunnlegger av Lumen Prize Carla Rapoport. De vil samtale om utviklingen og opprinnelsen bak kunst og teknologi, og hvordan dette kan relateres til praksiser i dag. Foredraget vil foregå på engelsk:

«What is digital art? This talk explores the changing terminology and interpretations of technological art.  Melanie will focus on the early explorations of artists who experimented with computers, often referred to as the pioneers of computer art. She will consider how such work resonates with contemporary artistic practices that embrace advanced technologies.»
