• 17 January 2018 Public lectures | Keynotes by Peter Westenberg and Joana Chicau
THEME Inspired by WORK, BODY and LEISURE the intervention #4 addresses ‘the spatial configurations, living conditions, and notions of the human body engendered by disruptive changes in labour ethos and conditions’. Students work on their individual fascination within the theme ‘technological sensibility versus sensibility’. The human – machine interface, the quantification of the body, privacy matters and the influence of technology and the internet of things on the relationship between human and space. Their work and progress is monitored, curated and put into context by the first CiRC* curator, Jorn Konijn. In addition their process is informally discussed with an international committee of leading international experts in both the working field and academia. In collaboration with Het Nieuwe Instituut, the commissioner of the Dutch Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. Katia Truijen will introduce the theme with the student in the afternoon of the 17th. She will also act as part of the jury on Friday 26 January.

Peter Westenberg is a visual artist and core member of Constant  an association for arts, media and technology based in Brussels operating on the intersections of open source software, copyleft and feminism while reflecting on net-ethics. His artistic work interrogates notions of public space, community and social place through collages, video and shared authorship projects. His short films, video work, walks and photography investigate urban iconography, vernacular architecture and social routines. He teaches at KASK and the Ecole de Recherche Graphique and works as free-lance curator, organizer and cultural adviser.

Joana Chicau is a media designer, creative coder, researcher - with a background in classical and contemporary dance - currently based in The Netherlands. She runs a transdisciplinary research project [ https://jobcb.github.io ] which interweaves media design and web environments with performance and choreographic practices. Chicau has been researching the intersection of the body with the constructed, designed, programmed environment, aiming at in widening the ways in which digital sciences is presented and made accessible to the public. She has been actively participating and organizing events with performances involving multi-location collaborative creative coding/algorithmic improvisation, open discussions on gender equality and activism.

Peter Westenberg will present examples of the work carried out during the work-session Transmarcations where a group of art, media and technology practitioners were asked to experiment physically and digitally with bodies-in-transition and their representation through a practice of cartography.

Joana Chicau will give a presentation on her artistic and choreographic practice presenting work that utilizes  the body as the interface between physical space and its digital representation.

The evening will conclude with an open discussion moderated by Lila Athanasiadou on the spatial dimension of both practices and the ethical dimensions of representation within the physical and digital realms.
