On Thursday 16 May and Friday 17May 2019, in the Centre of New Media & Feminist Public Practice, the fourth seminar/workshop of the programme will focus on the Madiated Body.
Seminar: The exuberance of the term new media describes the fact that the term includes a series of developments in technology that are associated with the emergence of a number of practical and theoretical approaches. We undertake an overview of the axes describing the relationship between gender studies and urban studies with new media and the consolidation, especially since the 1990s, of an important field in contemporary practice. Focusing on two broad study areas described a. as 'Art and Technology' or 'media archeology' related to the relationship to more 'traditional' technologies b. as 'the art of new media' linked to the most contemporary technologies: telecommunications, media, digital technology, the internet. The seminar focuses on the body's new media and public space / publicity issues: Real time, interactivity, (physical) body. New technological applications, digital, virtual reality, executive practices and technology, internet, augmented reality give new enlarged dimensions and expressive paths but also have many limitations. This module will examine the vocabulary of the post-human condition in relation to architecture, art and humanities. There will also be an introduction to the term cyborg as a conceptual tool and as a way of considering the social and material development of contemporary social environments.
Workshop: Performer and writer Erica Skourtis will present her work and focus on exercises using
the methods she has developed. Biography and physical inscriptions in performance and the representation of subjectivity. Random archives of engagement and everyday life from Whatsapp to open documents of self-narration and consumption. Sound, Voice and Technology as methodology.
On Wednesday May 8, 2019, at 7.30 pm, at the amphitheatre of the Department of Planning and Regional Development, Professors Dimitris Fatouros and Giannis Peponis will be granted an Honorary Doctorate of the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly.

In a work-in-progress format, the exhibition includes the student works that were produced during the exploration process towards the articulation of the structural design concept of an architectural structure based on a specific cultural event.
Challenging the prevailing typological practices, the course discusses structural design issues from a topological perspective.
In a teaching framework, the course consists of a series of exercises/ subsequent readings aiming to extract the concrete or abstract properties of the event and translate them to qualities of the spatial composition or/ and principles of the structural arrangement.
In a research context, the work attempts to approach the structural concept as a design resource and investigate the physical model as a tool for diagrammatic reasoning.
