Workshop 2: Experiment as Event in the Arts and Sciences

19-20 Nov 2009

Institute for Advanced Studies, Lancaster University

In this workshop we will focus on experimental practice in the arts and sciences. Hans-Jorg Rheinberger has described experimental systems as operating with a logic of 'differential reproduction', in that they are systems for organising the interrogation of the world in a way that is always open to the generation of surprise and novelty. In the workshop we look at different ways in which this logic operates in the sciences and in different forms of art, in order to find both contrasts and continuities between their practices - and thus to further illuminate the fundamentally evental characteristic of the experimental.
