The artists in this exhibition explore our existences, and the possible consequences of our scientific and technological imaginings as citizens in society, and the world at large.


Artists Anna Dumitriu (in collaboration with Melissa Grant and Rachel Sammons), Carla Gannis, AOS (Art is Open Source), Simon McLennan, Alan Sondheim explore the possible consequences of our scientific and technological imaginings for us as individuals, our society, and the world at large.

Humans have always exploited the raw materials this planet has to offer - with the power to change the nature of things, whether physical or virtual. With constant re-edits and enhancements we transform everything we touch as part of our evolutionary mutation.

The exhibition explores through, art, science, governance, posthumanism, biohacking, and biopolitics. It is produced in partnership with LABoral, in Gijon, as an extension of the Monsters of the Machine: Frankensteinstein in the 21st century, exhibition, ending Agust 2017. Based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein written 200 years ago which continues to offer a lens through which to examine current practices in arts and technology and how they shape society today.
