We invite artists, specialists and journalists to get together and to elaborate on the relevant topics of the times we are currently facing – or in other words, how does art make us reflect on the world and society, or in more words – how do artistic practices translate and are translated into the now.


In an edition that brings together numerous national artists, we decided to bring them together to talk about issues that have been concerning us, in a format that, by not talking directly about their works, makes them think about how their creations are inserted in expanded topics.


There will be 4 talks that will be held throughout the Festival, in a digital format and mark a beginning to question the future, through the present moment.


Talk #2 Artificial & sensory intelligence: present attempts at futurology



With Catarina Miranda, Jorge Jácome and Marco da Silva Ferreira, Luís Antunes
Moderated by Nayse López


More and more living in the future is more present to us, more and more the future comes to us faster. Touch has become one of the most important senses in recent years, both because of its absence and because of the constancy of our fingers on screens and keyboards. How does the new reality affect the concepts worked in the performative arts? In what ways do we replace humans on stage or try to supplant them? How does touch remain in a hyperdigital world?


Catarina Miranda, who is premiering CABRAQUIMERA, an explosion of contemporaneity, simultaneously physical and technological where, in the plastic dimension of gesture, she projects the body to a possibility of fiction; Jorge Jácome and Marco da Silva Ferreira, who bring us SIRI - a speculative laboratory of the human and the technological, the material and immaterial - join Luís Antunes, Professor of the Department of Computer Science of the University of Porto and who carries out his research in the area of cybersecurity and privacy, and Nayse López, journalist and curator who will moderate this talk.
