While the call for proposals to the conference Taboo – Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science 2023 taking place at the Malta Society of Arts in Valletta is open until the end of January 2023, the main core of the proceedings of TTT2020 Vienna/Online have just been released in an open access publication in digital format (e-Book), with ISBN number 978-960-7260-70-3.

Excerpt from the Introduction:
“The fourth international “Taboo – Transgression – Transcendence in Art & 12 Science” conference took place November 26–28, 2020, in Austria and online all over the world, hosted by the University of Applied Arts Vienna with the support of the Interactive Arts Lab of the Ionian University.
In November 2020 it was not just the pandemic that made the temperature drop in the atmosphere of Vienna, but also in its overall morale as we faced a brutal terror attack that claimed the lives of innocent victims—killing four people and injuring 23, seven with life-threatening injuries, including two students of the 15 University of Applied Arts Vienna. This terror act was a series of shootings that occurred on 2 November 2020 only a few hours before the city was due to enter a second lockdown light because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The question that was driving several presentations was to understand how and under what conditions such niche innovations, which seem to work successfully in hybrid and artistic contexts, can be condensed and upscaled to innovative transformation paths - stabilising new and more sustainable regimes. Is it possible to transfer diverse forms of transformative aesthetic literacy to other areas of our fragile societies in order to enhance new social practices and to promote positive change through futures literacy?”
