Τhe fourth international conference “Taboo - Transgression -
Transcendence in Art & Science” will take place November 26–28, 2020,
exclusively online as TTT2020 Vienna/Online, an umbilical cord between
what would be and what it is. Including theoretical and art practice
presentations, TTT2020 continues to focus: (a) on questions about the
nature of the forbidden and aesthetics of liminality as expressed in
art that uses or is inspired by technology and science; (b) on the
opening of spaces for creative transformation in the merging of
science and art.

TTT2020 Vienna/Online will have one unique streaming channel with a 12
hours program/day followed by a recorded re-stream for audiences in
other time zones. This means 24h a day for three days non-stop! The
program of TTT2020 is divided in four categories in a total of
twenty-three Sessions, six Roundtables, five ArtBox events and three
Open Mic Q&A sessions.

As usual in TTT conferences the titles are important counting with
Sessions “NSP13 / Moist”, “NSP2 / Brute”, “ORF8 / Sideways”, “NSP14 /
Automaton”, “NSP10 / Phrenic”, “NSP12 / Epic”, “NSP16 / Allure”,
“NSP15 / F-word”, “NSP3 / Mold”, “NSP9 / Channel”, “NSP5 / (W)Hole”,
“NSP1 / Creature”, “NSP7 / Demise”, “ORF1ab / Tonic”, “NSP4 / Stray”,
“ORF6 / Tutelage”, “ORF7b / Index”, “ORF3a / Medulla”, “ORF7a /
Equipoise”, “ORF9b / Auspice”, “NSP6 / Growl”, “ORF10 / Crack” and
“NSP8 / Sustenance”. At the end of the day there is an Open Mic Q&A
session with the possibility of participation of all speakers and
registered attendants.

Roundtables are featured as moderated live discussions on ArtSci
topics including: “Body Shopping – challenging convention in the
donation and use of bodily materials through art practice”, “In a
locked and scrambled form: Art-Science scenes, objects and figures in
corporeal transgression”, “Fermenting Futures”, “Radical
Vulnerabilities”, “All You Have to Lose is Ecstasy: The Intuitive,
Occult and Somatic as Methods of Inquiry” and “Staying in touch:
sci-fi experiments for post-coronavirus art curating”.

ArtBox compliments the program with references to art events taking
place during the pandemic titled: “Project Lygophilia”, “Bioscientific
Imaginaries”, “The Camille Diaries” and “Golem” as well as an
invitation to interact in a playful “Mud Workshop”.

Biopunk, hybridity and aesthetics of mutation; Cyborg, augmentation and bοdy modification; Post-gender, transgressive identities and social models; Psychopharmacology, somatechnology, and post-humanism; Chemistry of the mind, natural healers, and mind enhancement; Biotechnology, DIYbio, and biohacking; Ethology, human and nonhuman; Evolution, genetics, and extended evolutionary synthesis; Cyber-eroticism, sex technology, and techno-lust; Biopolitics, displacement, and resistance.

Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science reminds applicants that this conference was formed with the intention to allow for non-restrictive topics and discussions. TTT expects authors to delve into the most obscure, pathological, visionary and/or licentious lines of questioning. So if you have topics that touch on the deepest taboos in art and technology studies, transgressions to reveal that cause seismic activity on the fault-lines of the art and science divide, or even seemingly unmentionable, cultish, transcendental SciArt visions to impart upon us, then this is the venue to allow those novel subterranean and of the beyond whispers come out loud. TTT2020 offers a platform to engage in an openly liminal discussion. This is your chance to present concepts deemed: difficult, un-sutured, challenging, giddy, tawdry, festering, elated, illuminated, libidinal, queer, unpalatable, convulsive, feral and mutagenic. Please let TTT be an echo chamber of fearless ideation and know that this is a space for free range concepts and raw cognition unencumbered by topical limits.
