Transcultural Emancipation: Brain Flowers

Talk & Performance

The “Embodiment” research in psychology, neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience is gathering more and more evidence that basic functions of feeling, thinking and ego-consciousness are not possible without bodily interaction with the world and unconscious perceptions from the body itself. The artificial intelligence of the future will rely less on “deep learning”, the feeding of systems with vast amounts of data, or classical AI, but will increasingly focus on the interactions between body movements and consciousness.

The Performance Brain Flowers deals with neuroaesthetics and researches how we can activate cognitive areas in our brain through art. Neuroscientists and brain researchers have shown that when we look at art and/or create it by ourselves, a widely ramified network of brain areas, the so-called resting state network or ground state network, is activated.

In the project BODY EMBEDDING (initiated by Hongwei Duan and Ursula Maria Probst), which is launched as an artist-in-residence program in cooperation with Artists and Southeast Asien cultural institutions the canon of historiography is reformulated through a “herstory”, through narrative structures derived from a situated production of experience and knowledge.
