How can processes of affects during pregnancy be grasped and analized? Can they be digitally mediated, artificially reproduced or can similar effects even be fully created? If so, and if through this processes information will get lost, the effects will manifest in altered affects after birth. ︎

Interspecies Cannibalism

Theory

2017


The term cannibalism is mostly used to describe cases of intra-species cannibalism or even mere anthropophagy. Because of this one can suppose that there is both an intra-species-cannibalism and the feeding of one species on the other, called inter-species cannibalism. The constructed “other” is in every case in some aspects akin. Which aspects are relevant? Is every kind of cannibalism morally reprehensible? The “critique of inter-species cannibalism” is a broad intersectional exploration and examination of the term cannibalism and its implications in our multispecies world.

Human / Being

Video Installation

2017


In a dystopian future scenario, it is possible to cultivate, harvest and modify human beings to rent or sell them as friends, assistants and companions. While thinking about the future, we could miss a practice already taking place today: Animal breeding – modifying, cultivating and harvesting non-human animals to sell them as pets – but really as friends, assistants and companions, all the way to fill a substitute-function as e.g. children or partners.
Where lies the difference between animal-breeding and the breeding of human-beings for the same reason?

Die Installation Dreaming of CRISPR/cas (ehemals “Untitled”) bewegt sich im Zwischen und Außerhalb der Kritik ontologischer Konzeptionen der Naturwissenschaften, sowie Konzepten von Naturwissenschaft.
