TTT is an interdisciplinary and nomadic event, where both practitioners as well as theorists present and discuss the status of art-science and/or art & technology. TTT, created by Dalila Honorato, Assoc. Professor, Dept Audio & Visual Arts of the Ionian University, is based on the support of a large informal network of international researchers and practitioners that develop their activities at the edge of art and science intersections. The TTT conference series is supported by its Steering Committee whose members include: Roy Ascott (UK), Andreas Floros (GR), Dalila Honorato (GR/PT), Gunalan Nadarajan (US), Melentie Pandilovski (AU/MK), Stelarc (AU), Polona Tratnik (SI) and Adam Zaretsky (US/GR). TTT has been hosted at the Ionian University (2016-2017), Mexico (2018), Austria-Online (2020) and will soon be hosted in Malta (2023).
The fifth international conference Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science will take place September 27–29, 2023 in Valletta, Malta. Approximately 170 speakers from more than 30 countries focused (a) on questions about the nature of the forbidden and about the aesthetics of liminality, and (b) on the opening of spaces for creative transformation in the merging of science and art, participate.
Besides the conference sessions, TTT2023 Malta presents its art-show entitled RawCookedRotten, which includes an exhibition and performances, as an invitation “to explore the dimensions of food and reflect as well on the complex meanings and relationships between Eating and Beingeaten”. The program includes contributions by the Rewilding Cultures Consortium, Hub of Art Laboratories, KONTEJNER bureau of contemporary art practice and Cultivamos Cultura.
