Visualising Immaterialities

The Institut für Gestaltung 1, Prof. Stefano de Martino, organizes the international symposium Visualising Immaterialities which will take place on December 2nd, 2016, 9.30am – 5pm, at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Innsbruck.

The symposium will address what always determined and will continue to shape the world we are living in – entanglements of immaterialities and materialities. Tropes like desire and body, experience and space, wealth and commodity or power and technology underlie, more or less directly, the conduct of everyday life. They are premise, in the one or other way, of numerous essential histories, theories, treatises, concepts and works in the arts and humanities. They inform, engender and inspire, to more or less extent, how existing realities can be thought, challenged and renewed. And they may be understood as a premise of architectural and urban design.
 
Key to this is how immaterialities can be made visible and how such visualisations make a particular understanding of the world possible in return. How artefacts, installations, performances, photographs, videos, mappings, drawings, books and blogs may act as devices for such endeavour, what informs their actual making and potential impacts and how they may allow us to reconceive the particular societal instances they address is at the centre of our interest and concern. For this reason, the symposium brings together positions from art and architecture that record and/or conceive entanglements of immaterialities and materialities in ways highly relevant today.
