    Cyborgism: Artistic Hybridizations of Human Perception

    EVA Copenhagen 2018 - Politics of the Machines - Art and After

    Aalborg University, Copenhagen, Denmark, 15 - 17 May 2018

    Looking back at debates within cultural theory and philosophy, the intersection of technology and human perception has been discussed for quite some time. But what happens when technology becomes embedded within the body itself thereby changing the very framework and starting point for perceiving the world? Cyborgism is described as a specific art movement in which artists produce their artworks through new senses created by the union between cybernetics and their organism.

    These fundamentally new perceptions within cyborgism on the one hand result in a new type of cyborg artworks but may also result in a new way of re-perceiving existing artworks and the world in general. This new field of cyborg perceptions within the production and experience of art poses a new perspective and new questions regarding the intersection of technology and human perception, as both concepts change their fixed meanings by ways of the artistic hybridizations of human perception within cyborgism as an artistic movement.
