"Wrapped In Code – The Future Of The Informed Body"
The symposium is the moment, in which workshops and hackspace of NODE get quiet and take a stand. With a strong grounding in the present the symposium sets its sights on the future. Even with closed laptops, practice is still the center point. We ask our selves: What can we do? What are the social and political dimensions of what we’re doing?
The symposium talks a lot of of technology and how to make things, but the focal point is how digital technology changes our own body. So it should be relevant to anybody.
We bring a wide range of positions to the view. The view will be wide and rudimentary. The Symposium is sub-divided into four thematically arranged panels with each focus on one particular aspect. We bring together just emerging positions (like in fashion and textile crafts) with well established disciplines (like in electronic music). We mix highly controversial positions (as in surveillance technologies) with universally accepted stances (as in prosthetics). Each of the four panel starts with an introductory talk by each participant, and will continue in a discussion.
