The exhibition explores the phenomenon of the prosthesis as bodily extension in the 21st century.

About

Exploring new technologies and recent developments in neuroscience and biology, Susanna Hertrich proposes new transhuman sensory extensions of what may eventually become 'human 2.0'. The exhibited works are part of her long-term artistic research project Bodies & Technology.

In Susanna Hertrich’s work a narration is constructed in which the human sensory apparatus is extended through computer controlled prostheses. The results can be understood as crossing the boundaries between artistic hypothesis and technological experimentation. The artworks reflect our current living environments, as well as critically question the social, political and physical consequences of the new technologies utilised in their making.

Next to Hertrich's works Art Laboratory Berlin will showcase a film on Neil Harbisson and the Cyborg Foundation.
