When Cybernetics Meet Aesthetics is the title of a conference that will bring the revaluation of cybernetics to bear as a potentially decisive contribution to the dialog focused on the necessary redefinition of the status of media art. Can the ever-more-blatant contrasts between the “two cultures” attain convergence in artistic work with media? Can the modern-day “art of complexity” of simulating social networks, natural systems of rules, and the dynamics of feedback effects at work in the economy be understood as cybernetic processes? Which current prospects are opened up by reviewing the theory and practice of the cybernetic art of the 1950s and ‘60s?
