The relation of nature and technology has obviously shifted within the last years. The body increasingly is pressurized by a technology which more and more lets the borders of the body blur. Technical objects and procedures define to an always stronger extent what we understand as our subjectivity. Which potential of acting must already be allowed technical objects? Which “images” of the subject can yet be detected?
“Active Agents” analyses the current techno culture by asking how the differentiation between the technical and the social has been blurred and in what way this suspension of an ontological border also has to be described as political project. In this respect, the exhibition handles also the preconditions, interfaces and potentials of acting in the frame of extended body dispositivs, thus also questions of models or even utopias of coexistence.
