Re: View from Nowhere
A Symposium on Art and Science in 2020.
November 26, 2020, 4PM CET/10AM EST on Zoom
Mónica Bello, Erich Berger, Michael Doser, Lukáš Likavčan, Metahaven, Blanca Pujals, Tamara Vázquez Schröder
Organized jointly by MA Space and Communication HEAD-Genève, Arts at CERN, and Metahaven, the symposium ‘Re: view from nowhere’ is interested in the way in which physics, “the science in which we have achieved our greatest detachment from a specifically human perspective on the world,” might inform, inspire, or flow towards the practices of art, design, and filmmaking.
CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, was founded in Geneva in 1954 in a spirit of internationalism and multilateralism. In the context of this event, it will serve as a framework to consider new cross-pollinations between science and art.
In ‘Re: view from nowhere’, artists and researchers from a variety of backgrounds will not make any attempt to hide their differences in approach and vocabulary. Instead, they will engage in circulation, between science and art, of a more unfiltered form of insight. By facing the very limits of the possibility of dialogue, the event hopes to foster an unsmooth context for new exchanges.
