See details below

The Aesthetics After Finitude conference and exhibition address the problem of a non-, post-, trans- or inhuman aesthetics: an ‘aesthetics after finitude’ that is capable of investigating the cultural, technological and ecological demands of a rapidly dehumanising present. This is a call to develop new trajectories for artistic, poetic, and sonic practice arising alongside the recent shift in contemporary philosophy attributed to thinkers such as Quentin Meillassoux, Ray Brassier, and Reza Negarestani.

The two-stream conference features keynotes Reza Negarestani, Mohamed Salemy and includes presenters Justin Clemens, Sigi Jottkandt, Ted Colless, Renata Morais, Douglas Kahn, Alexis Destoop, Stephen Muecke and Lendl Barcelos.

Presented by xHUMS, Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences and hosted by the National Institute for Experimental Arts, Faculty of Art & Design.
