Some imagine capitalism fuelled by technology reaching an extreme peak, where humans become information uploaded to live online. Others advocate for a way out of the anthropocene, in which man and nature form a sustainable feedback loop. Still others feel that technology will offer little help, and instead focus on simpler means and materials.
Trans-human, rematerialisation and animist aesthetics are reemerging and combining in new ways. In the West, thanks in part to globalisation, one tends to think that these futures are truly the world’s futures. Yet, could “the end of the end of History”, and therefore curbs on a world wide capitalism, be near?
Those possible futures will be explored and questioned within “From trans-human to South perspectives” at Rowing, from April 8 to May 14, with works by Dorothy Iannone, Aurora Pellizzi, GCC, Gabriel Meo, Octave Rimbert-Riviere, Estrid Lutz & Emile Mold, Lupo Borgonovo, Matteo Nasini, Athena Papadopoulos and Robert Rush
