Marco Donnarumma, artist, scholar and Research Fellow at Berlin University
of the Arts, hosts a one-day symposium investigating the hidden threads
across posthuman affect, cognitive robotics, ritual performance and art.
Three stakeholders engage in a series of lectures and an ensuing collective
conversation so as to offer a transdisciplinary insight into how today's
forms of (intelligent?) computation can affect - and be affected by -
bodies, machines and the arts.

Coupling theory with practice, the event features the exhibition of a
prototype for Donnarumma's forthcoming new artwork, an autonomous
prosthetic sculpture named Amygdala, as well as a screening documenting the
creative process of the artist and his collaborators.


Invited speakers:

Marie-Luise Angerer
Chair for Media Theory / Media Studies, Institute of Arts and Media,
Potsdam University, Berlin, and author of the forthcoming Ecology of Affect
(Meson Press)

Irini Papadimitriou
Digital Programmes Manager, Victoria & Albert Museum, and Head of New Media
Arts Development at Watermans, London

Manfred Hild
Professor of Digital Systems at the Beuth University of Applied Science,
and Head of the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory, Berlin


The event is part of Configurations (2016-18), Donnarumma's artistic
research project exploring the abject and intimate borders between human
and machine through performance, ritual and sound. The project is funded by
Graduiertenschule at Berlin U. of the Arts, Berlin Centre for Advanced
Studies in Arts and Sciences and Einstein Stiftung Foundation. It is made
possible by a partnership with the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory (DE),
a collaboration with Ana Rajcevic Studio (DE/UK), and support from Hack the
Body, Baltan Laboratories (NL).
