E.A.T. - Experiments in Art and Technology
Michelle Kuo has since 2010 been the editor-in-chief of the art world’s magazine of record, Artforum International, the single most influential periodical of the international art world. She received her Ph.D. from Harvard University and her dissertation focused on the 1960s art group E.A.T. (Experiments in Art and Technology), was the topic of her presentation at SSE. E.A.T. was a unique association of engineers and artists that included Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Whitman and the Swedish engineer Billy Klüver.
The initiative was launched to realize works of art in unprecedented collaborative ventures, employ cutting-edge technology and to create artworks that would not have been possible without the expertise of scientists. Can E.A.T today inspire an E.A.B. (Experiments in Art and Business) to make Business help solve our Global Challenges?
