Antennae CFP: "Art and Science -- Interface and Experiment"


Deadline coming soon: June 1st


The past twenty years have seen a spike of the interest in art and science collaborations. Partly because of the resonance of the posthuman cyborg in the ontological turn; partly because of the rise of BioArt; perhaps because of the prominence that multidisciplinarity has acquired in academia; and surely in light of our fraught relationship with our environment and climate change, the intersections of art and science have recently become more complexly defined by new ethics, politics, aesthetics, and poetics.


Far from celebrating “art and science” as an unproblematic field of inquiry, the two issues of Antennae resulting from this CFP will focus on the challenges, compatibilities and productivities posed by multidisciplinarity, accessibility, epistemology, methodologies, empiricism, and speculative philosophy.


This project is co-edited in collaboration with American artist and philosopher Jonathon Keats whose bold experiments raise serious questions and put into practice his conviction that the world needs more "curious amateurs," willing to explore publicly whatever intrigues them, in defiance of a culture that increasingly forecloses on wonder and silos knowledge into narrowly defined areas of expertise.


The first issue will be dedicated to the notion of “Interface” and the second to “Experiment”. As both themes are open to interpretation, we invite artists, scholars and other creative thinkers to position their contribution within the concerns of current discourses and practices.
