Aboagora – Between Arts and Sciences 2014

Chaos and Cosmos

Aboagora 2014 discusses the multiple understandings of “chaos” and “cosmos”. Cosmos is not understood only as an “explanation of the world”, but also in a wider sense as order. Order and disorder – cosmos and chaos – are not mere counterparts, but sources of meaning for human creativity and construction and deconstruction of the universe. They are paired categorisations, where one cannot exist without the other, yet the boundary between chaos and cosmos remains ambiguous. Aboagora will approach the interminable task of understanding multiple conceptualisations of chaos and cosmos by looking at the newest developments in cosmology, physics, big data, aesthetics, creativity, culture, religion and mythologies. Aboagora wishes to explore this extremely rich subject, which has been an inexhaustible ground for artistic and scientific exploration throughout the history of humankind.

Aboagora “Chaos and Cosmos” takes place on 12-14 of August 2014.

Location: Sibelius Museum, Piispankatu 17, 20500 Turku.
