The 15th edition of the CYNETART festival for computer-based art is very much characterised by the essence of the Festspielhaus Hellerau that opened 100 years ago. Between November 16th and 26th 2011 the building designed by Heinrich Tessenow especially for the proclaimed “Body Liberation“ movement will be transformed into a space laboratory where cultural, artistic and academic as well as technological dimensions of contemporary and future body perception can be experienced. Visitors are invited to explore various experimental setups at the interface between naturalness and artificiality and thus to experience their corporeality in new and different ways.
The transdisciplinary symposium “Body Innovations“ will deal with cross connections between scientific, medical, media and cultural developments in conceptions, and in the re-construction of the human body. Hereby, the CYNETART festival 2011 ties in with Dresden’s tradition of innovation that reaches from the Festspielhaus Hellerau through the Dresden expressionist artist group “Die Brücke” and the “Glass Man” at the Deutsches Hygiene Museum to the laboratories of today’s research institutions.
