Interdisciplinary Conference

TABOO - TRANSGRESSION - TRANSCENDENCE

in Art & Science

9-13 September 2025, Kino Šiška, Ljubljana

TTT 2025

The international conference Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science (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 has been hosted in Greece (2016-2017), Mexico (2018), Austria-Online (2020) and Malta (2023). The conference focuses (a) on questions about the nature of the forbidden and about the aesthetics of liminality, as expressed in art that uses or is inspired by technology and science, and (b) on the opening of spaces for creative transformation in the merging of science and art. Topics explored in the TTT Conferences include: Biopunk, hybridity and aesthetics of mutation; Cyborg, augmentation, and bοdy modification; Chemistry of the mind, natural healers, and mind enhancement; Biotechnology, DIY&DIWO, and biohacking; Ethology, human and nonhuman; Evolution, genetics, and plasticity; Post-gender, transgressive identities, and social models; Human sexual response, laws of attraction, and queer eroticism; Parasitology, symbiosis, and microbiome; Biopolitics, displacement, and resistance; Pandemic, bioterror, and scientific trust; Witchcraft, gender narrative, and history of science; Rewilding, degradation and restoration.

Taboo-Transgression-Transcendence in Art & Science (TTT) conferences lasts three days and gather approximately 100 speakers from more than 30 different countries following peer-reviewed selection of abstracts. TTT, created by Dalila Honorato, 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. Since its beginning TTT seeks to provide a comfortable setting for the interaction of its participants and the attendants at the institution hosting it. This is accomplished through coordinating the conference's agenda with the development of other activities such as art exhibitions, screenings, live performances, book presentations, poster exhibitions, and workshops developed within the hosting institution in collaboration with other organizations. The major outcome of the conference is the publication of its proceedings in the peer-reviewed journal Technoetic Arts published by Intellect and an open-access book with ISBN number by the Ionian University Publications.  

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). Each TTT conference has a different hosting institution as well as a distinct organizing committee (responsible for the entire structure of the program and production) and a new guest artistic-scientific committee (responsible for peer-reviewing the presentation proposals submitted).
