Sarah Browne, ‘Report to an Academy’, 2016. Still from HD video, 28 minutes. Image courtesy of the artist.In/Human: The Body as Resource is a day-event, a hybrid of performance, workshop and symposium that explores our understanding of the body and how its evolution is accelerating towards an unknown, posthuman, horizon. The works presented consider how science, technology and media co-opt individual bodies to monetise expertise, produce ideology and generate content. The event will centre on themes present in the objects collected by William Hunter (1718-1783) which included scientific instruments and specimens, as well as paintings and coins.

The event includes: Kathryn Ashill (UK); Marcel Broodthaers (BE), Sarah Browne (IR); Christian Fogarolli (IT); Michael Grey (US), Anja Kirschner and David Panos (DE/GR) and Mihnea Mircan (RO).

A full programme for the day will be available soon.

Book your place via Eventbrite.
