TTT2020: Call for papers, posters and artist-talks
Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science 2020
Deadline for proposals: March 31, 2020
The University of Applied Arts, Vienna, Austria, 26–28 
November 2020

The fourth international conference "Taboo - Transgression - 
Transcendence in Art & Science" will take place November 
26–28, 2020, in Austria, hosted by the University of Applied 
Arts Vienna. 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, and (b) on the opening of spaces for 
creative transformation in the merging of science and art.

What constitutes the unstable limits of what can be morally 
and epistemically accepted should be read within the 
historical horizons of cultures and circumstances. After 
all, what seems outrageously transgressive at one moment in 
time and from one perspective may eventually transcend into 
a commonplace practice. As we experience and even endorse a 
gradual, but substantial, de-centering away from 
anthropocentric values and ontologies, critique potentially 
harbors turmoil. Art practices pose critical questions about 
our certainties; sciences and humanities constantly test our 
limits and our ideas of worlds by pushing forward the 
conditions in which knowledge is produced.

Developments in science and technology that seem to enhance 
the borders of our experience of worlds and selves, 
revealing sometimes the fragility of social values, should 
be contemplated. Identities, ideologies, multiplicities, 
worlds, and visions are accepted and rejected, invented and 
destroyed: what are the forces behind and beyond? We propose 
critique within transdiscipline, where science, arts, and 
humanities meet in a research quest, in an attempt at 
reframing and reconfiguring what there is. Through immersion 
in the complex realm of limits and liminalities, one might 
trace the historical and trans-subjective structures 
filtering our experience of worlds, and ultimately open up 
space for transformations through the interaction of art, 
science, and the humanities.

Submissions are welcome from all art and research fields and 
cutting-edge technology in arts-based research. Suggested, 
but not exclusive topics, are those associated with: 
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. The conference language is English. Proposals 
are submitted for consideration to the members of the 
scientific and artistic committee.

Each proposal must include: abstract (which should be no 
more than 500 words), presentation title, 
author(s)/artist(s) name(s), affiliation(s), e-mail 
address(es), up to 5 keywords, short CV / resumé 
(approximately 150 words), type of presentation: paper, 
poster or artist talk. Proposals for artist talks should 
also include link(s) to documentation material (photos,
