Exhibition "HUMAN+. The future of our species"
Cyborgs, superhumans and clones. Evolution or extinction? What does it mean to be a human today? What will it feel like to be a human a hundred years from now?
Technological capabilities are increasing at a rapid pace—should we continue to embrace modifications to our minds, bodies and daily lives, or are there boundaries we shouldn’t overstep?
This exhibition explores potential future trajectories of our species by considering both historical and emerging technologies, as well as their cultural and ethical contexts. What does it mean to be human today?
From Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) to human digital remains, our lives are mediated and defined by our tools and scientific discoveries.
However, this exhibition is not a blind celebration of technology, but is intended to present a range of imagined and real possibilities, allowing visitors to make up their own mind about the preferred future of the human species.
The exhibition will be shown at the CCCB (Barcelona Contemporary Culture Center) from 7 October 2015 to 10 April 2016.
