~~The Mediated Body~~
a roundtable co-presented by Artscisalon, Subtle Technologies Festival and KMDI, curated by Nina Czegledy
Friday 26 October, 5 – 7pm
Bissell Building, Room: 538
University of Toronto,
140 St. George Street, Toronto
The round table entitled “The Mediated Body” is inspired by SPLICE : At the Intersection of Arts and Medicine. This show presents a scientific gaze at the human body by showcasing traditional anatomical art, complemented and challenged by contemporary artworks. Over recent decades the human body has become a key site of scientific, social political and cultural interpretations. The paradigm shifts revealed important questions about alienation, the potential loss of agency and context while at the same time allowing us new opportunities for expressions of identity on a borderless scale. The increased uses of technologies have changed how we see ourselves and the world around us. The panel discussion is intended to investigate and comment on these issues.
