Speaking from the Laboratory | Mark B. N. Hansen & Hans-Jörg Rheinberger
100 Years of Now. The Opening
2015, Sep 30–Oct 04
The laboratory as a Future-Generating Machine
How did new modes of writing, embodiment, and instrumentation produced in the laboratory shape everyday perception? And how can experimentation be understood as an aesthetic phenomenon? This dialogue brings together historian of science Rheinberger in dialogue with media theorist Hansen to discuss the apparatuses of bodies and machines, the laboratory as a “machine for generating the future,” practices of experimentation and their outcomes as well as the attendant aesthetics, that define our society today.
