“Morphogenic Angels” explores a future in which humans gain transhuman abilities through organic modifications. These new beings are called angels. They can live for hundreds of years and possess the consciousness of all species: ancestral, natural, physical, extraterrestrial, animal, cellular and cosmic. In this first part of “Morphogenic Angels”, the artists’ collective takes the audience into this future post-capitalist world. In a controller game presented in an immersive installation at HAU3, the audience follows the characters Yaxu and Anamt’u’ul, who fall in love but are also confronted with the consequences of their joint development in a metaverse.

The installation includes a game screening and virtual reality and asks which values will be in the foreground in an AI-mediated world. The premiere will be accompanied by a playthrough as a preview of the game with the Berlin drag character Hungry aka Johannes J. Jaruraak on the Twitch channel “hungxiety”.
