Opportunities and Community Announcements

Call for papers: From Utopian Teleologies to Sporadic Historiographies: "Interfaces" of Art and Cybernetics

Call for papers for the session, Interfaces of Art and Cybernetics, at the 39th Annual Association of Art Historians Conference, University of Reading, UK, 11 - 13 April 2013. This session redresses a lack of attention to cybernetics globally. Session organizers invite presenters in the visual arts and from non-art disciplines to reconsider or generate knowledge about generations and geographies of art and cybernetics, including practices that create, distribute, and theorize art forms, concepts, and histories. Papers may explore cybernetic phenomena in artistic environments; examine artistic play on logic and reason; consider how art or non-art agents treat cybernetics as a social and cultural paradigm, or question how cybernetics is presented in historiographies of recent art and what interfaces of cybernetics and art bode for intra- and inter-disciplinary research and practice.
