Reading and Thinging #3

18 February 2016 / 6-8pm / Gallery 2

 

Combining a reading group with a ’show and tell’ session, Reading & Thinging explores themes in science, philosophy and media theory relevant to contemporary art practice through a curated reading list and discussion of objects.

 

Taking the closing of the Follow exhibition as inspiration, this session will explore themes of post-humanism, post-internet technologies and the Anthropocene.

 

The Reading and Thinging group is a collaboration between current FACT PhD researchers and FACTLab residents, as an opportunity to make different areas of research, like philosophy, media theory and robotics, open and accessible, while developing a community of readers, thinkers and thingers! that mixes theory and making.

 

Reading for this session will include texts by Dorion Sagan, Jakob von Uexküll and Bonnie Bassler.

Please email factlab@fact.co.uk for the reading materials.

 

FACTLab and its' events are supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union and Connecting Cities
