Despite the numerous "tech-specific", or "future looking" events, appearing daily on the world stage, it is worth noting that we are almost at the end of the first decade of this century, and yet the discourses which we are using are quite
old - postmodern at its best!

The Symposium is therefore aimed at defining the concepts and processes characteristic for the beginning of the 21st century.

Some of the themes the speakers are urged to visit:

What are the decisive theoretical and practical developments
of this decade?

How has the ideological framework of images shifted in the 21st Century? How can we measure the real power of these images?

Are some aesthetic categories or concepts of the late 20th
century already obsolete? Are there new
categories appearing on the horizon?

Bio-technology and other wireless, or less so, technologies are offering themselves to us quite openly, but perhaps more important are the hidden, underlying processes in our society,
which we seem to constantly neglect.
