What is the relation between the human body as a living organism and the machine technologies applied in medical care? Organized around four thematics – embodiment, technology, care and design-, the Critical and Clinical Carthopgrahies Conference evoked the practice of cartography as a means to map the elusive and shifting thresholds between the organic and the inorganic, the innate and the acquired.
Critical and Clinical Carthographies arises from a transdisciplinary conference organized by the Theory Section and Hyperbody of the TU Delft Architecture Department in cooperation with the Bio Mechatronics and Bio Robotics Section of the Department of Bio Mechanical Engineering, TU Delft.
'The critical […] and the clinical […] may be destined to enter into a new relationship of mutual learning. […] In place of a dialectic which all too readily perceives the link between opposites, we should aim for a critical and clinical appraisal able to reveal the truly differential mechanisms as well as the artistic originalities.' Deleuze, 1967
'The ambition of Critical and Clinical Cartographies is to rethink medical and design pedagogies in the context of both Affective and Digital Turns. […] The practice of carthograpy is employed for exploring relations between the body, and the machine technologies used in medical care and architecture design, in order to map the ever-shifting thresholds between the organic and the inorganic, the innate and the acquired. The present volume affords the reader a chance to encounter diverse research trajectories in development. The Conference Proceedings, with its intricate entanglement of diverse contributions, constitutes cartography in its own right with an ambition to rethink the established theoretical frameworks.' - Andrej Radman, Stavros Kousoulas
