The keynote speaker will be Dr. Giselle Beiguelman. With its growing reach and its consolidation as a medium that facilitates extensive interactions and interventions, cyberspace has become a platform for the aesthetic production of hybrid discourses and different forms of narratives. By enabling economic, social and cultural interactions, digital media provide apparently limitless possibilities for human creativity, cultural production and, potentially, for political agency. However, increased reliability on “new media” also demands that scholars, artists and activists pose important questions about the ways in which information and knowledge are acquired, produced, disseminated and accessed. This conference invites participants to reflect critically on and share experiences about the impact of cyberaesthetics on human creativity, cultural production, agency and aesthetic criticism. Also, the conference intends to promote debates around cyberaesthetics as a possible force for the relativization of hierarchies and proliferation of rhizomatic instances of legitimization.
