Course description:

This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our seminar with the topic that crowns a decade of exploring innovative interdisciplinarity. We are particularly interested in social, political, mediatic approaches to the topic, as well as in the historical dynamics of philosophical approach to the concepts of progress and decadence, and its artistic and performative thematizations. Contributions from the field of historical studies of the natural sciences are welcome. We also want to open space for a debate on the changes in the cognition of art in the times of so called “technological singularity”.
