Refresh!  the 1st International Conference on the
Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology

" Recognizing the increasing significance of media art for our culture, 
this Conference on the Histories of Media Art will discuss for the first

time the history of media art within the interdisciplinary and 
intercultural contexts of the histories of art. Banff New Media 
Institute, the Database for Virtual Art and Leonardo/ISAST are 
collaborating to produce the first international art history conference 
covering art and new media, art and technology, art-science interaction,

and the history of media as pertinent to contemporary art. "

GMT 15:30 h /  CANADA 8:30 am
keynote Edmond Couchot: Towards the Autonomous Image

16:30h / 9:30 am - opening plenary - MediaArtHistories: Times & 
Landscapes 1
(Chairs: Oliver Grau and Gunalan Nadarajan )
After photography, film, video, and the little known media art history 
of the 1960s-80s, today media artists are active in a wide range of 
areas (including interactive, genetic, telematic and nanoart). Media Art

History offers a basis for attempting an evolutionary history of the
audiovisual media, from the Laterna Magica to the Panorama, 
Phantasmagoria, Film, and the Virtual Art of recent decades. This panel 
tries to clarify, if and how varieties of Media Art have been splitting 
up during the last decades. It examines also how far back Media Art 
reaches as a historical category within the history of Art, Science and 
Technology. This session will offer a first overview about the visible 
influence of media art on all fields of art.
Speakers:  Gunalan Nadarajan, Luise Poissant, Oliver Grau, Mario
