8th Triennial of Contemporary Art – U3
Beyond the Globe
Moderna galerija (MG+), Museum of Contemporary Art (+MSUM), Reactor Center Podgorica
Curator: Boris Groys
In our cultural imagination Cosmos functions as a code word for the danger of the final extinction of all life on Earth, and at the same time for the most radical Utopian aspiration of universal harmony.
The exhibition presents many possibilities for the artistic exploration of the topic at hand: the connection between artistic and scientific imagination, the cosmos as analysis of sci-fi culture, perspectives of corporeal immortality and critique of contemporary technology.

ArtScience Forum #2
ArtScience Interfaculty, Royal Academy of Art, The Hague
In light of exchanging methodologies between the two culture fronts, we have to wonder – why should science incorporate a different, less-strict method, namely that of the arts? Why should it use art to reinforce its way of working, when it is innately capable of laterality? Conversely, why should artists engage in ‘lab work’, scientific research and ‘non-artistic’ fields in general, where the efficiency and purposefulness of work is constantly brought into question?
Forum #2 Dissolving Method, aims to look into the questions above in more depth with two speakers of note who will share their own personal experiences and perspectives. Pek van Andel, a medical researcher and serendipitologist and Špela Petrič, scientific researcher and intermedia artist, both situate their practices on the fringes of lateral thinking. With them, we will inquire into methodological uncertainty, concurrently bringing in focus contingency and spontaneous order.
Moderators: Katarina Petrovic, Luke Boorman
