“Post Human & Art” is a lecture series hosted by the Korea Foundation and ARCOLABS. It was designed to motivate new ideas and discourses on art in the post-human era through invited experts, such as artists, curators, and scholars, who have been establishing an in-depth and extensive artistic perspective and practice in their own field.
There are many global issues making a direct impact on life on Earth and beyond. Ironically, no one denies that human beings are the significant cause of the impacts, which contributed to the emergence of the idea of ‘Anthropocene’ the present geological epoch which has created the global ecosystem dominated by human activities for the sake of human being.
Some artists pay attention to the way humans have established their relationship with non-humans in order to challenge the traditional idea of humanity and overcome the problem of the human-dominated world. This is not only limited to the problem between humans and nature, but also to regard the relationship between humans and non-living organisms such as objects, machines, and technologies.
The first lecture series held on December 9, 2021 will be led by Unhappy Circuit, a Korean new media artist whose work is based on the convergence of diverse disciplines, such as art, astronomy, biology, data science, and linguistics. His main curiosity is on non-human intelligent beings and by exploring and understanding them, he wishes to expand the scope of humanity and ultimately prepare for the future of human civilization based on symbiosis between human and non-human.
