Art as Laboratory of New Society

The aim of the project is to analyze and interpret in a multicontextual approach models relations in which the latest European art interacts with specialized scientific research. This art is part of the so called art&science. Our research aim is to define it as an unconventional and modern form of cultural laboratory, performing mediation and translation efforts between scientific experiments and their possible social implementations. The project also describes the cultural consequences of post-technological turn, which consists in a systemic incorporation of technology into artistic, scientific, social, political and economic processes, and has influential meaning for art&science paradigm development.
