“From the perspective of the present, the future of humanity might be monstrous... but this is not necessarily a bad thing.” Julieta Aranda
The image of the human being has changed significantly in recent decades. Technological innovations, socioeconomic transformations, and new insights gained in neurology compel us to rethink the constructs that define what is human and enable us to conceive them anew in the form of the inhuman.
The artists participating in the exhibition “Inhuman” offer visions of the human being as a socially trained yet resistant body, transcending biologically or socially determined gender classifications, as a digitally immortal entity, or as a constantly evolving self. They visualize the constructs that define what is human and shift existing perspectives on human subjectivity and the body, thereby questioning the primacy of the human being at a fundamental level.
