art and posthumanism

Another of the KIAS-sponsored courses, Art and Posthumanism, was led by Dr. Maria Whiteman from the Department of Art and Design. The students in her seminar had the opportunity to examine the texts on posthumanism on a deeper level, as well as experiment with production of visual texts, as way to research into posthumanism. Of specific importance to this discourse are those distinctions that have been made between human and animal, flesh and technology, society and nature, and man and his other – divisions that have long defined and delimited the possibilities and responsibilities of human beings towards the rest of the world.

I popped by the course last month to listen in and to take some pictures of the students deep in discussion.
