POM Conference Series

The POM-conference series addresses the politics of the machines and the inescapable technological structures, as well as infrastructures of artistic production in-between human and non-human agency with critical and constructive perspectives. Where and when do experimental and artistic practices work beyond the human:machine and human:non-human dualisms towards biological, hybrid, cybernetic, vibrant, uncanny, overly material, darkly ecological and critical machines? How are we to analyse and contextualize alternative and experimental ontologies and epistemologies of artistic practices beyond transparent dualisms and objectifications? How are the relationality and operationality of machines being negotiated into cultural and social ontologies? What are the politics – past, current, future – of these negotiations?
