Arts in Our Changing Environment

What is ICAPAS 2020

Theme: Arts in Our Changing Environment

Terms of Reference
By now it has become a cliche to describe art mimics reality and, on the other hand, that our world has increasingly been modelled on our arts. Yet, it is increasingly important to understand the interdependence and tensions between our creative practices and the environment. Art's irrationality adapts itself to and changes the economy. Art reproduces the social structure and changes the society from which it grows, and art changes our relationship with the natural environment as the environment changes and needs a new art.

The artistic viewpoint is accustomed to focusing on the chaotic and unpredictable aspects of change, while keeping its patterned reorganisation of known elements at bay. Hence, art falls short of providing an imaginary space to envision, for example, an alternative economy after the 2008 financial crash. It has also been recycling the tired image of the destitute polar bear, whereas the nature of climate change exceeds our human temporal and spatial dimension (Morton, 2013) and requires new conceptual models. We also see the same absence of imaginary space of the vast, hidden, and secret global project of mass surveillance by the state and its capitalistic twin by the multinational corporations. Such dynamic and radical changes need new language, sensibility, and way of understanding.

This conference invites perspectives from different disciplines: science, technology, social, and humanities to share and enrich our understanding on these exciting and contemporary issues.
