4-channel video installation as part of
The New Human
THE NEW HUMAN explores our human condition in a fast-changing world. How do we perceive ourselves as humans? How do we live, socialise, organise and control each other? And what kind of future awaits us? THE NEW HUMAN is an exhibition that offers insights into a global warzone of religious fanaticism and political extremism, but that also highlights examples of solidarity and compassion. It oscillates between the hysterically absurd and the deeply serious, just as mankind seems to be skirting the borderline between ultimate disaster and the emergence of something new.
Participating artists: Adel Abdessemed, Ed Atkins, Robert Boyd, Esra Ersen, Harun Farocki, Kerstin Hamilton, Daria Martin, Santiago Mostyn, Ursula Mayer, Adrian Paci, Tomáš Rafa, Frances Stark, Hito Steyerl, Superflex and Ryan Trecartin.
