Utopian Practices: Art, Science and Design REunited

19 Mar 2009

Is it finally time to reunite the Sciences with the Arts? How can we (re)combine the works of artists, designers and scientists, and what value would it add?

To answer these questions and more: Waag Society, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences’ Virtual Knowledge Studio and The Arts & Genomics Centre of Leiden University have organised the conference 'Utopian Practices: Science, Art & Design REunited' in De Balie in Amsterdam on Thursday, 19 March 2009.

Art, science and design were once closely tied to one another, but in the modern age technological specialisation and other divisions brought about a fragmentation of these fields. Increasingly, however, we have begun noticing a number of cross-pollinations between fine arts, applied arts and the sciences.
During the conference 'Utopian Practices: Science, Art & Design REunited', a number of pioneers in this issue will present some surprising connections between the various disciplines like Susan Kennard, Executive Director of the new media institute BANFF in Canada will talk about the unique way that BANFF brings together researchers, artists and designers. Professor Emeritus Martin Kemp from Oxford University will discuss the similarities between artists and scientists based on what he calls ‘structural intuition’. And artist Beatriz da Costa will tell us how difficult it is to break down the barriers between art and science based on the question ‘when does Art become Science?’

Utopian Practices is the official opening for a programme dealing with the daily practice of art, science and design organised by Waag Society, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences’ Virtual Knowledge Studio and The Arts & Genomics Centre at Leiden University.

The Conference
Utopian Practices: Art, Science and Design REunited will take place on 19 March
2009 in De Balie, Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10 in Amsterdam.
Start: 09.00 – 17.30
Ticket sales via De Balie: 020 – 5535100 or website
Admission: € 15 (including lunch)
Utopian Practices can be viewed live at: Killer TV and the De Balie website
Language: English

Utopian Practices is an initiative of Waag Society, The Arts & Genomics Centre and the Virtual Knowledge Studio
