PhD Workshop with Aalborg University and the IT University

The PhD workshop contributed to and took place place prior to and after the international conference “Politics of the Machine: Art and After” (May 15-17 2018 in Copenhagen). The attendees participated in a workshop where they generated online and offline outputs related to the conference theme. The conference was centered around questions about how machines impact and contextualise artistic production and perception and in doing so welcomes submissions that take an innovative approach to the politics of the machine.

The overall themes of the workshop were openness in/of machines and the potential political and social effects of opening up the machine. It was organized along two tracks:

1 — Open Structures, Open Machines – Production of Futures
2 — Open Bodies, Open Machines – Future Pleasure Objects
