OPEN CALL - OPEN FIELDS 2019: GREEN, POST-HUMAN AND AI

OPEN CALL - OPEN FIELDS 2019: GREEN, POST-HUMAN AND AI

The 4th Open Fields conference on Artistic Research, Science and Technologies and RIXC Art Science Festival 2019

July 4 – 7, 2019, Riga, Latvia.

Venue: the National Museum of Art of Latvia


This year's RIXC Art Science Festival 2019 is centered on the theme of green, providing a cross-disciplinary platform for the discussions and artistic interventions exploring one of the most pervasive and broadest topics of our times. The festival will feature the “GREEN” exhibition opening, taking place in the National Museum of Art, and the 4th OPEN FIELDS conference on “Green, Post-Human, and AI”.


“Are we in control of ‘green’?  … Green, symbolically associated with the ‘natural’ and employed to hyper-compensate for what humans have lost, needs to be addressed as the most anthropocentric of all colours, in its inherent ambiguity between alleged naturalness and artificiality. .. Despite its broadly positive connotations, ‘green’ incrementally serves the uncritical desire of fetishistic and techno-romantic naturalization in order to metaphorically hyper-compensate for indeed material systemic biopolitics consisting of the increasing technical manipulation and exploitation of living systems, ecologies, and the biosphere at large.”  (Jens Hauser, “Green” concept, 2018)


OPEN CALL


Alongside “green”, the central topic of this conference, the Open Fields 2019 organizers also welcome visionary and critically ungreen, post-human, socio-algorithmic and spectral (prismatic) proposals by artists, scientists, doctoral researchers and experts from different academic disciplines and professional fields.
