Event Description

We are pleased to announce the conference program for "Does It Matter? Composite Bodies and Posthuman Prototypes in Contemporary Performing Arts", that will take place on 17 - 19 March 2015, jointly organised by research centre S:PAM (Studies in Performing Arts & Media) at Ghent University (Belgium) and art centres Vooruit and CAMPO. The program is now open for registration.

In this international conference, we take as a point of departure a posthumanist perspective on the performing arts. We adopt the notion of a posthuman community as an entangling mesh of interdependent objects, technologies and beings as the basic constellation of a performance context.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Mylène Benoit, Maaike Bleeker, Matthew Causey, Peter Eckersall, André Lepecki, Jean Paul Van Bendegem and Kris Verdonck.
