The Department of Audio and Visual Arts of the Ionian University organizes, within the 8th Audiovisual Arts Festival “Ten Years of AVARTS” (May 14-18, 2014), a two-day symposium with theoretical and artistic presentations. Submissions are welcome both from scientific fields related to audiovisual arts, as well as from the diverse fields of multimedia expression with emphasis on interactive media.
The objective of the two-day symposium "Metamorphoses of corporeality: Art-Body-Technology" is to contribute to the international interdisciplinary dialogue on issues related to the constant expansion of the physical capabilities of the human and their manifold implications for an interpretation of the body. Concurrently, the event seeks to provide a meeting venue for the scientific and artistic communities, whose approaches, although departing from different perspectives, can equally contribute to the public awareness concerning the crucial question of body image. Invited to participate in the dialogue are research works engaged, among other, with the fields of medicine, biology, neuroscience, philosophy, anthropology and informatics. At the same time, artists with creative involvement in fields as diverse as bio-art, digital arts, comics and documentary are also welcome to contribute. The symposium proceedings will be published in digital format (e-Book) with ISBN number.
Deadline for submitting abstracts: April 6, 2014
Response date in case of acceptance: April 15, 2014
Deadline for submitting draft presentations: May 9, 2014
Two-day symposium schedule date: May 16-17, 2014
