The Logic of Listening: Pierre Schaeffer and the Acousmatic Reduction

Date & Time:

Fri May 9th 2008, 3:15 pm - 5:15 pm

World-making and World Art May 9-10, 10am-5pm, Berkeley Art Museum Theater, free admission Sponsored by the Arts Research Center.

This conference explores practices of visual and aural culture in painting, photography, film, architecture, performance, music, and new media as world-making—how they create human worlds of sensation, knowledge, and action. The traditions addressed range from 19th-century Europe and 20th-century America to the medieval Islamic world, the transnational Caribbean, and contemporary India. Speakers aim to confront theories of world-making with the diversity of world art traditions. It seems obvious that art makes many different worlds. How do they interrelate and change? Are interpre- tations limited to individual cultures, or do they offer resources for comparisons among traditions? What world is involved in “world art”?
