RETHINKING

MATERIALITY:

AFFECT,

TECHNOLOGY,

AND ART

Workshop WG3
EU-COST-Action New Materialism
University of Potsdam
June 16 – 18, 2016
Since the mid-nineties art and media theories have distanced themselves from critiques of representation and instead have embraced a new orientation towards an affective or ›materialist‹ view. Together with new ontological concepts pointing at pre- and non-human materiality and affections, digital technologies have built an infrastructural environment and have been a constitutive force for questioning fundamentally the status of matter and affect. These concepts form a new frame of engaging with art, fashion, film, and performance.
