Schinkel Pavillon | HUMAN IS
Schinkel Pavillon is currently showing the exhibition HUMAN IS. Distinctions between dystopia and reality are increasingly collapsing in the face of unstoppable technological and ecological upheavals. Against this background, Human Is uses science fiction as an intellectual and aesthetic vehicle to mobilise alternative future scenarios, political imagination and a new posthuman ethic. The exhibition borrows its name from the short story of the same name by Philip K. Dick (1955) and negotiates humanity as a disputable and reversible category.
