The Third Culture – A Vision for a Science/Art/Technology Conversion Dialectic

The lecture is organized as a part of the exhibition “Situational Awareness” by Marko Peljhan, opening Wednesday 17 October 2007 at 6 pm at the offices of the European Commissioner for Science and Research, Dr. Janez Potocnik in the European Commission Building/Berlaymont (11th floor, Rue de la Loi 200, 1040 Brussels).

The exhibition will present the development phases of the ten-year project Makrolab (1997-2007), an autonomous communications, research, working and living unit that focuses its research on telecommunications, climate systems and migrations. The final phase of the project that is currently in development within the International Polar Year 2007-2008 programme will be implemented as a permanent setup on the Antarctic and Arctic, where Makrolab will serve as an independent transnational art-science station for research.

The exhibition is produced by Zavod K6/4 and Praksa for Contemporary Investigative Arts in collaboration with Zavod Projekt Atol and partners (C-Astral, Stvar Architecture, I-TASC and International Polar Year 2007-2008). Lecture is co-organized with FoAM and iMAL. The gallery programme is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia.
