::: The term ‘black box’ is among the recurring vocabulary of STSs. It is usually understood as a series of technological processes that run invisibly within efficient socio-technical frameworks. The technological black box has been a fruitful concept in many fields in architecture. However, there is another use of the term ‘black box’ beyond architecture. In the field of performing arts, the black box is the space formed by the stage of a theatre. These two views of the concept of ‘black box’ can be seen to share a ‘happy coincidence’. Or they can be seen as a chance to extend the notion of black box that is usually employed in the STSs, such as architecture. How can this second notion of stage black box extend the notions of ‘technological black box’? ::: Uriel Fogué's lecture ‘Domestic theatres: living (in) black boxes’, Friday 2nd September, at 4pm! :::
