Talking about arts...

The Informed Body - NODE15 Exhibition

NODE is a forum dedicated to diverse modes of reflection about technological and social phenomena. As part of the exhibition program, we host talks and workshops with artists and associated thinkers and makers. We initiate discussions that touch on the festival’s leitmotif as well as on our guest’s personal ideas and convictions. The "Sprechstunde", podcasts and other presentations offer an open space for the participating artists and the audience to discuss aspects of the leitmotif with a specific focus. The first Sprechstunde will be a kick-off for a festival-wide social experiment. We are looking forward to start the conversation!

A Podcast Series on 'The Informed Body'

The body is an interdisciplinary battlefield. Biology, anthropology, sociology, literature, theatre and basically all fields of science and arts have taught us lessons about what it means to have a body, to be a body, to bring another body into the world or to impersonate someone else's body. The same can be said about the question of embodiment in our technology driven society which has literally haunted science at least since the proclamation of the “corporeal turn” in the 1990s. In a series of podcast sessions, we have invited a group of exciting authors and scientists to contribute their thoughts.

The Authors

For NODE15, we have invited a group of exciting thinkers and dreamers to contribute their personal perspectives on the leitmotif. Their narrations form layers of alternative interpretations and enrich our understanding of “The Informed Body”.
