Heidi Kumao’s “Misbehaving Machines” and Matt Kenyon’s “Tardigotchi” are featured in Human+, an exhibition at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB). The exhibition explores potential future trajectories of our species by considering both historical and emerging technologies, as well as their cultural and ethical contexts. It investigates the boundaries of what it means to be human — boundaries of the body, boundaries of the species, boundaries of what is socially and ethically acceptable.
The exhibition is curated by Cathrine Kramer and is co-created by CCCB and Science Gallery, Dublin.
