About the ATC

Berkeley's ATC lecture series is an internationally known forum for presenting new ideas that challenge conventional wisdom about technology and culture. This series, free of charge and open to the public, presents artists, writers, curators, and scholars who consider contemporary issues at the intersection of aesthetic expression, emerging technologies, and cultural history, from a critical perspective.
