The interdisciplinary event series “Nonhuman Agents” takes into account recent philosophical approaches which question anthropocentrism. These discourses emphasize non-human perspectives through object-oriented ontology (Harman and Meillasoux); discuss nonhuman / human encounters (Haraway); postulate a 'posthumanism' (Braidotti); and examine various posthuman performative strategies such as intra-acting (Barad). A new 'de-centering' lets us draw our attention to a reality that can no longer be described in purely anthropocentric parameters.

The presentation takes place in cooperation with the Berlin Network of Independent Project Spaces and Initiatives and the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.

Upcoming workshops:

Heather Barnett + plan b (Sophia New & Daniel Belasco Rogers) | Swarm | Cell | City

This 2-day workshop is a participatory experiment on art, performance and biology that precedes the exhibition Nonhuman Networks. The project invites the participants to view the city of Berlin by the nonhuman perspectives of the intelligent single-cell organism Physarum polycephalum and GPS tracking.
