  [ART & MEDICINE. Body Media - Media Body]

Kunstverein Medienturm
Josefigasse 1, 8020 Graz

The symposium "ART & MEDICINE. Body Media - Media Body", presented by the Graz-based Kunstverein Medienturm and supported in content by the Institute of Art History at the Karl-Franzens-University of Graz, understands itself as theoretical basis of the media art works, displayed in the exhibition "ART & MEDICINE. Interfaces to the Body" at the wellness centre in Bruck/Mur; for this reason the symposium takes place before the opening of the exhibition.
The programmatic link of media art and medical-imaging procedures emerges through the establishment of an interdisciplinary image-science: such approaches are currently developed in Basel (Boehm), Magdeburg (Sachs-Hombach), Karlsruhe (Wyss) and also in Vienna (Belting). The umbrella term of "performative sciences" as used in Graz, can be assigned to this topical field and describes in its fundamentals a topos, appropriate to both areas (ART & MEDICINE): the sensualisation of genealogical, not perceivable information through the transference to impulses that can be processed by the human senses, for the reason of scientific research results.
