.
The Electromagnetic Bride - conference
V2_Institute for the Unstable Media
in collaboration with Goethe Institut Rotterdam

Saturday May 6th, 10.00 - 17.00 (Central European Summer Time GMT+2)

The Electromagnetic Bride examines the contemporary relationships in the perception and actions of the human body and the global electromagnetic environment. Taking its cues from an intersection in the work of Nikola Tesla and conceptual contemporaries including Marcel Duchamp, Konrad Zuse and Robert Barry, the conference will examine how these relationships link the histories of electronic technological innovation to the context of current artistic practice.
