THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 AND FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15

 

ART & TECHNOLOGY I: HUMAN AESTHETICS IN FUTURE TECHNOLOGIES

This panel will examine how human aesthetics as we acknowledge it today, experiences a shift with the development of softwares, robotics and artificial intelligence. Aesthetics has always been linked with the human's ability to feel emotions. Thus, can we consider aesthetics as something that is only related to the “human sphere”? If not, how do we frame it in a post-human, hyper-technologized society? Within the context of contemporary art, we will discuss the possibility of aesthetics outside of an object-oriented discourse. And consider the existence of an immaterialized aesthetic of data offering a new format to work with reality.  We will also try to understand to what extent robots, Ai softwares, and algorithms will be able to create something that is entirely new.  Hence, ask if it is possible to consider technology as unlinked from the human, the organic?

ART & COLLECTING AT BLOOMBERG HT: CREATING AN ARTISTIC MEMORY: ART COLLECTION

As a storyteller of the modern world, art is writing a history of the past and the future in the hands of connoisseurs. Art, as a self-expression form from past to present, comes alive in wide range of disciplines from architecture to literature. Thus, we will be looking for some answers in CI Dialogues to the questions like what is art, how can it be collected and how do we need to look at an art piece.
