The Department of Audio and Visual Arts of the Ionian University 
organizes for the second year in a row the interdisciplinary 
conference "Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science", 
including theoretical and artwork presentations.

The conference continues to focus:
a) on questions about the nature of the forbidden and about the 
aesthetics of liminality - as expressed in art that uses or is 
inspired by technology and science,
b) in the opening of spaces for creative transformation in the 
merging of science and art.

Besides the call for papers and artwork presentation, this year's 
conference also includes a call for posters, organized in conjunction 
with the A-Club of the Planetary Collegium. Art's playfully 
transgressive nature offers creative bypasses to the grammar of 
science and expands the dialogue with its openness to a multiplicity 
towards the new. Nevertheless, art - albeit its originary affinity 
with the taboo - is never completely liberated from moral 
considerations. Deeply involved into this lively discourse on the 
nature of the taboo, art becomes the very domain of contemporary 
experimentation with transgression, in order to provoke and sparkle 
discourse, catalyzing possible forms of transcendence.

Deadline for submitting abstracts and short CV: until February 28, 2017
