Event details

Organised at the Winchester School of Art by Yigit Soncul and Jussi Parikka The Image of the Network is a one day symposium that explores the connection between aesthetics, politics and technology.

New technologies of addressing the involuntary aspects of human cognition open up the topics of both affective design and new modes of preemptive surveillance. The double logic of security and commerce is an effective context in which the contemporary platforms of design and aesthetics are to be understood, at the centre of the so-called control society, as posited by French philosopher Gilles Deleuze.

This agenda opens up issues of surveillance, anticipatory logic of networks and art practices important to this technological infrastructure. The aim of the event is to problematise and initiate a debate on the contemporary politics of embodiment and visuality through such themes of network politics. The topics map the definitions of the image in an age that is characterised by concepts such as contagion, immunity, affect, the involuntary, preemption and premediation.
