A lecture by Michele Di Stasi

Tuesday, October 23, 2018, at 6.00pm
Nomas Foundation, viale Somalia 33, Rome

Through a reconstruction work, lead through historiography and iconography, Michele Di Stasi (Università degli Studi di Roma "La Sapienza", Les Cahiers européens de l'imaginaire, #MEM research unit) will try to highlight the relationship between the human and the machine, both for the aesthetical perspectives (anthropomorfisms) and for what concerns the social perspectives (mythological cores) of the machinical configurations history.

Among the analyzed configurations, there will be: the automaton; dolls, mannequins and fetishes; robots and androids; the cyborg.

Theorical references of the lecture will be artists and authors as: Walter Benjamin, Roger Caillois, Massimo Canevacci Ribeiro, Hans Bellmer, Fritz Lang, Karel Capek, Kraftwerk, Claudia Attimonelli, Donna Haraway, Philip K. Dick, Neil Harbisson, Georges Bataille, Gilles Deleuze & FĂ©lix Guattari, Antonin Artaud, Jean Baudrillard, Marshall McLuhan, Guy Debord, Rosi Braidotti, Robert Pepperell.

The reflection, lead through sociology with images, aims to reveal some of the mythological cores connected to this dialogical and lasting relationship, such as the one with the sacred, the feminine, death, the false and falsification, magic and the unintelligibility, the other and the inorganic.

The event is in the frame of the Rome Art Week
