Non-Western Media Genealogies

A Substantial Motion Research Network workshop with Laura U. Marks and Kalpana Subramanian

In this workshop 6 media artists/scholars in dialogue with Substantial Motion Research Network members will explore alternative genealogies of contemporary media art, re-imagining its roots and connections with non-Western philosophies and practices. There will be a brief introduction to SMRN and the workshop by Laura Marks and Kalpana Subramanian. The participants will share their work in ten minute presentations which will be followed by feedback/discussion sessions of twenty minutes each. There will be two guest presentations by Chris Lee and Jodi Lynn Maracle. Through this workshop we seek to engage the Buffalo humanities and arts communities with the research focus and activities of SMRN.
