The 2nd International Conference on the Histories of Media, Art, Science and Technology takes place in Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, 15-18 November, 2007. The organisers describe it as “an international forum for the presentation and the discussion of exemplary approaches to the rapport between art, media, science and technology” – a “thematic focus on locatedness and the migration of knowledge and knowledge production in the interdisciplinary contexts of art, historiography, science and technology”. Sounds good!
Preannounced speakers include Michelle Barker (“From Life to Cognition: investigating the role of biology and neurology in new media arts practice”) and Boo Chapple (“Sound, Matter, Flesh: A history of crosstalk from medicine to contemporary art and biology”) and a so far untitled keynote by Lorraine Daston.
