Yuk Hui
Art and Cosmotechnics

In his talk “Art and Cosmotechnics”, Yuk Hui addresses the challenge of technology to the existence of art and traditional thought, especially in light of current discourses on artificial intelligence and robotics. Thinking art and cosmotechnics together is an attempt to look into the varieties of experiences of art and to ask what these experiences might contribute to the rethinking of technology today.

This event will take place within the scope of the activities of the research seminar X-Centric Futures, coordinated by Giovanbattista Tusa.
