“Stories for a more-than-human world” is a group exhibition with a series of talks and tours. The invited positions for the exhibition range from sculptures, drawings and video, to installations with electronics or living bio-matter. The main selection criteria was that the works emphasize a non-anthropocentric viewpoint and critically or playfully investigate understandings of being human, being machine, being hybrid in a present where the impact of technology – be it on the environment or on our own bodies – is ubiquitous.
The theme of the event is a reaction to recent discussions between humanities and natural sciences about new approaches to thinking about, looking at, working with, and being inside nature. It draws references from fields of posthuman theory, new materialism, cybernetics and science and technology studies.
