Announcing the Fall 2012 - Spring 2013 Art, Technology and Culture Colloquium Lecture Series

"Something that tends to happen with new technologies generally: The most interesting applications turn up on a battlefield, or in a gallery." -- William Gibson

Monday Evenings, 7:30-9:00 pm
Banatao Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley
ATC lectures are free and open to the public.

UC Berkeley's Art, Technology, and Culture lecture series, founded in 1997, is an internationally recognized forum for ideas that challenge conventional wisdom about technology and culture. The series, free of charge and open to the public, presents artists, writers, curators, and scholars who consider contemporary issues at the intersection of aesthetic expression, emerging technologies, and cultural history from a critical perspective.
