    7th international conference for the histories of media art, science and technology

    RE: TRACE - the 7th International conference on the histories of media art, science and technology will be hosted by the department for image science and held at Danube University Krems, Göttweig Abbey and the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna. More than a decade after the first conference founded the field now recognized worldwide as a significant historical inquiry at the intersection of art, science, and technology, media art histories is now firmly established as a dynamic area of study guided by changing media and research priorities, drawing a growing community of scholars, artists and artist-researchers.

    Art History for Artists: Interactions Between Scholarly Discourse and Artistic Practice in the 19th Century

    The development of art history as a discipline during the 19th century has been variously associated with the politics of national identity, the needs of a growing bourgeois public in search of cultural capital, or of an expanding art market. However, the role of art training, and art practitioners themselves in the shaping of the discipline remains unexamined. Courses in art history had been systematically introduced in the curricula of art and architecture academies since the late 18th century, and spaces of art education count among the first institutional homes of the discipline, well before the establishment of autonomous university chairs. This conference aims to explore the interactions and productive tensions between art practice and art scholarship in the 19th century.

    Seeing Through? The Materiality of Dioramas (1560-2010)

    Dioramas are at the crossroads of artistic, scientific and cultural practices. They bring together painters, sculptors, scientists, and collectors, thus providing an opportunity to reflect on the polyvalence of these actors and the definition of their expertise. To date, these installations have been studied by scholars from various disciplines, mainly as side topics. Media historians have considered them primarily as proto-cinematic, whereas within the fields of anthropology, museum studies and postcolonial studies, they are generally analyzed as displays that reflect political taxonomies and stereotyped representations.

    Relics @ the Lab

    1st International Workshop

    Scientists of many different disciplines are involved in the study of relics and kindred artefacts, but till now there was no real forum for these people to exchange ideas and discuss methods. Therefore the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA, Brussels) is organizing a two-day workshop on the scientific study of relics. During this meeting we want to give analytical scientists, textile specialists, conservators, anthropologists, historical researchers, people involved in 3D reconstruction as well as radiocarbon dating specialists a forum to exchange ideas about relics.

    Art & Archaeology

    International call for projects

    Under the program NEARCH, two calls for proposals on the theme of art and archeology have just been launched. The aim of the NEARCH project is to explore and strengthen the relationships between European citizens with archeology, particularly through art projects. In this context, the CENTQUATRE in Paris and the JAN VAN EYCK ACADEMIE in Maastricht therefore invite artists from all disciplines who are interested in the link between art and archeology, to apply for residency in their buildings.

    Dialogues between theatre and neuroscience 2013

    On the 6 and 7 June 2013, for the fifth consecutive year, Sapienza Università di Roma will be organising the International Conference “Dialogues between Theatre and Neuroscience”. The theme chosen for this year’s conference is the following: In what ways does interdisciplinary encounter change the disciplines involved? In what ways can the practices and studies of theatre change the research praxis of neuroscience? In what ways can the theories and paradigms of neuroscience modify the research praxis of theatre, in both its performative and academic cultures?

    Electricity and Imagination

    Seminar Machines and Imagination, 2012-2013

    Throughout the nineteenth century the astonishing technical success of electricity had a great impact on the contemporary imagination. The Volta’s battery which impressed Napoleon, the telegraph system that linked Europe and United States and later the electric light and the x-rays fascinated not only physicists but also artists, men of letters and eclectic intellectuals. The lightning  that gives life to the doctor Frankenstein’s creature in the Mary Shelley novel is the most known case. But also the photographs representing Duchenne de Boulogne’s studies of human facial expressions produced via electrical stimulation and the ‘futuristic’ arc lamp painted by Giacomo Balla are emblematic examples of reactions and interactions between technical development and artistic creativity. The aim of the seminar is to explore how, in a period that was later defined the age of electricity, both science and arts contribute to the representation of electrical technologies.

    Images of Animate Movement. Representations of Life

    The fascinating paradox that we can see life in abstract images is the starting point of this conference. In a drawing of just a few lines, we can immediately recognize a human figure walking. A moving quadrangle can be seen as a crawling caterpillar. And some well-placed moving points are directly joined together in the form of a dancing couple. Again and again, we are astonished that we can actually see a creature moving in the image – even when the image is of such a reduced and simple nature or when it is not even a temporal moving image. How this impression of animate movement can be explained is what is explored at this conference: how can a simple line or form suddenly transform into something so specifically meaningful? How is this transition – this coming to life – to be described? How can it be constructed in the first place? The conference "Images of Animate Movement. Representations of Life" brings together different domains of knowledge in order to approach the phenomenon of animate movement and its images in its complexity in a new way.

    Seeing/knowing. New Perspectives on the Visual in the Sciences

    Lectures series of the Centre Alexandre Koyré, Paris (2011)

    L’essor considérable des études visuelles en science depuis quelques années est en partie une réponse aux interrogations épistémologiques posées par la place croissante de l’image dans la production et la vulgarisation scientifiques contemporaines : nouvelles technologies de visualisation, présence de plus en plus forte d’images, modèles et simulations dans l’enseignement et la recherche, la communication et la muséologie des sciences. Ces études sont un lieu d'échanges fertiles entre l’histoire et la sociologie des sciences et des techniques et l’histoire de l’art, de la photographie, du cinéma mais aussi l’histoire culturelle et des représentations. Ces croisements ont permis de faire émerger de nouveaux objets d’étude et de nouvelles façons d’appréhender et de mettre en perspective historique les « manières de voir » et les représentations visuelles en science.

    Being an Art Historian today

    En tant que science humaine, l’histoire de l’art ne peut rester figée dans un schéma de pensée, se devant de se renouveler en se confrontant aux propres évolutions de son sujet d’étude. Ainsi, alors que les révolutions artistiques de ces dernières décennies ont profondément transformé le champ de la création, il apparaît nécessaire de s’interroger sur la manière dont ces bouleversements ont modifié, ou non, les réflexions et les modes de recherches de l’historien de l’art, ainsi que les applications de son travail. Ce colloque s’articulera autour de trois problématiques principales qui interrogeront le réaménagement des cadres traditionnels dans lesquels l’histoire de l’art est née.
