Online symposium: ‘Re: View from Nowhere’ by HEAD, CERN & Metahaven

The symposium Re: View from Nowhere, organized jointly by HEAD Spaces and CommunicationArts at CERN, and Metahaven is taking place on 26th November 2020. The talks will be focused in the way in which physics, “the science in which we have achieved our greatest detachment from a specifically human perspective on the world,” might inform, inspire or flow towards the practices of art, design, and filmmaking.

CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, was founded in Geneva in 1954 in a spirit of internationalism and multilateralism. In the context of this event, it will serve as a framework to consider new cross-pollination between science and art.

In spite of these analogies, there are also differences between science and art, the ways their practitioners think, sketch, create and discover, and the way their processes and results are communicated and discussed.

In Re: View from Nowhere, artists and researchers from a variety of backgrounds will not make any attempt to hide their differences in approach and vocabulary. Instead, they will engage in circulation, between science and art, of a more unfiltered form of insight. By facing the very limits of the possibility of dialogue, the event hopes to foster an unsmooth context for new exchanges.

Speakers include Mónica Bello, Erich Berger, Michael Doser, Lukáš Likavčan, Metahaven, Blanca Pujals, Tamara Vázquez Schröder
