Week-end Blade Runner
November 27 & 28 2021 | CENTQUATRE-PARIS
Concert & Performance, Lecture
The Arts & Sciences Chair of École polytechnique, l’École des Arts Décoratifs-PSL, and Fondation Daniel et Nina Carasso together propose a very rich weekend around Ridley Scott’s film Blade Runner, inspired by a novel by Philip K. Dick, with numerous conferences and round tables, documentaries, VR and the premier ofFranck VigrouxandAntoine Schmitt’saudiovisual perfroamnce.
Among the subjects discussed: the aesthetics of the artificial, the descendants of Blade Runner, its influence on theatre, comics, cyberpunk, video games, cybernetics, urbanism, transhumanism… And of course, empathy, that invisible emotion that is increasingly difficult to discern, even though it is supposed to differentiate humans from androids.
