When many of the principles behind contemporary art celebrate the discipline as a territory for subjective interpretability, how can this ‘knowledge’ transcend the limits of the personal to articulate crucial distinctions between opinion and knowing? How does artistic transdisciplinarity function in epistemic relation to the manifold fields from which they draw conceptual and practical resources? How are the forms of knowledge that art generates transformed by the the destabilization of the anthropocentric foundations of epistemology, the rise of machine cognition and recognition of the limits of disciplinary humanities?
The Knowledge Forms - Forming Knowledge pre-conference open working sessions with Antonia Majaca, Milica Tomić, Patricia Reed and Mohammad Salemy will envelop through close reading sessions, art and cinematic material analyses, cognitive mapping and the generation of a provisional glossary for the conference on the following day.
