Technological advances, socioeconomic change, and new insights in neurology compel us to reassess our concept of human nature. The “Inhuman” symposium brings together a number of philosophical positions that question the basic assumptions of humanism. It presents current perspectives on human subjectivity and the body that do not rely on the figure of man, transcend biological and social determinations of gender and conceive the self as inherently and permanently mutable.

Within this context, fundamental doubts arise regarding the primacy of the human being, and one recognizes the need to reflect upon matter independent of the human being and develop a new materialism.

Johannes Paul Raether will present a new performance within the Transformella cycle.

Admission is free—please rsvp to symposium [​at​] fridericianum.org.

The symposium takes place in the context of the exhibition Inhuman, on view at Fridericianum until June 14, 2015.

The exhibition Inhuman is funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
