International Conference at the University of Graz (October 17-19, 2019)
'Questioning the Non-Human Other: Political Potentials of Living Beings in Art' is an International Conference taking place in Graz, Austria from October 17 through the 19th. It addresses the concept of "agency" as it pertains to plants and animals in contemporary art and theory. The conference unites renowned artists with researchers in the fields of art history/ art science, philosophy, anthropology, biology, human-animal studies and media theory, in order to gain a deeper understanding of the current trends in art and culture. By linking the latter to current theoretical discourses, it explicitly addresses a general public as well.
