Manfred Mohr, Eduardo Kac, Christa Sommerer & Laurent Mignonneau @BIAN International Digital Art Biennial


The 4th edition of BIAN takes place from June 29 to August 5 at Arsenal art contemporain, is entitled AUTOMATA: Sing the Body Electric in reference to Walt Whitman’s 1855 poem I Sing the Body Electric. In this ode to physicality, the author explores ideas of the mind, the electrified body, and the ways in which these elements interact, implicitly or explicitly, in respectful or exploitative relations. Today, the “electrified” body is in dialogue with other bodies and systems in multiple and ever more innovative ways.
