Summary/Abstract: The paper analyzes the performative-conceptual turn in contemporary art, starting from the idea of two bodies and two worlds – life and artificial or aesthetic – in the media created reality. The emphasis is on changing the concept of interactivity works which replaces the aesthetics of the event. Language, speech and body are opened as a complex unity of the Biosphere and Technosphere of the situation and the context of freedom of action. From Duchamp to neoavant- garde problem of freedom of human action is shown in the aesthetization of things/objects that replace the originality of the work. Technosphere media art is coming to a radical change in the event of art as reproductive differences. The question of truth in the event of contemporary art is now derived from the distinctive events in a work that requires a new interpretation.
