The Perception Machine Crisis Conglomerate - 4 entries into the methodology of synsmaskinen
Objectives and Content
Synsmaskinen is an artistic research conglomerate based at the Institute of Art at the
University of Bergen. Synsmaskinen proposes a multifaceted inquiry into contemporary
crises. Through a variety of interrelated artistic projects, a politically-charged horizon
comes into focus: apocalyptic abysses, systemic entanglements, and hyper-complex
In 4 talkshows Synsmaskinen now attempts a final overview. Organised around
4 themes, PERCEPTION/CRISIS/MACHINE/CONGLOMERATE, each talkshow will
draw lines and content form the 7 research projects and the vast mesh of
research material accumulated in the 3-4 years existence of Synsmaskinen.
The 4 talkshows are aimed at the MA-program at the Institute of Art and the
PHD-program at KMD, but are open to all KMD students, all KMD staff and
visitors for outside as well.
The Perception Machine Crisis Conglomerate is funded by
PKU and KMD.
