"Cybioses – life in the future imperfect", NSU summer session “what a waste: surplus art, theory and tékhnē”

                Dear previous participants,

This is the call for the summer symposium, "What a waste: surplus art, theory

symposium series called:

"Cybioses – life in the future imperfect"
