The International conference Philosophy of Art Today, organized by the Polytechnic Museum together with the Art Foundation Moscow Biennale, will take place at the State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow.

Traditional conferences of the Polytechnic Museum and Art Foundation Moscow Biennale finally join their efforts to conduct the first international meeting for researchers of contemporary art, philosophers, new media theorists and experts, researchers of the ways science and technology affect art.

The primary task of the conference Philosophy of Art Today is to discuss the way that philosophy of art correlates with philosophy of science and technology, the way technology and science affect contemporary human studies, and the cultural transformations taking place in the modern technological society.
