In 1968 the artist and writer Jack Burnham prophesised that, "a Systems
Aesthetic will become the dominant approach to a maze of socio-technical
conditions rooted only in the present."

The symposium investigates this claim by responding to, provoking and
presenting a sustained discussion on systems-theory and art. Speakers
discuss art's relationship to the operation of social systems, provide
the basis for an account of the diverse art practices that occur after
modernism in terms of a systems aesthetic and explore a definition of
artistic media which is not materially specific.
