Katja Kwastek is Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art History at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Prior to this, she has been teaching at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (Munich). Her research focuses on processual, digital and post-digital art, media history, theory and aesthetics, and the digital and environmental humanities. In 2004, she curated the first international exhibition and conference project on “Art and Wireless Communication”. She has lectured internationally and published many books and essays, including her most recent “Aesthetics of Interaction in Digital Art” (MIT Press, 2013).

Talk: E-CO ART? When Electronic and Ecological Arts Meet

At first sight, the conjunction of ecological and electronic arts might evoke, at maximum, “the chance meeting on a dissecting-table of a sewing-machine and an umbrella!”. However, if one digs deeper, the interrelations are striking. This lecture will explore these (contemporary, but also historic) interrelations along three lines of thought: the shared fascination of both ecological and electronic arts with processual action (a systematic series of events directed towards an end), the increasing impact of digital technologies on our concepts of the environment, and the biased attitude of both electronic and ecological arts towards questions of applicability versus artistic autonomy.
