A number ofartworks mastering technics and hi-tech innovations appeared in recent years at contemporary art territory. These art creation’s materials are living matter and live-like substance, while its means are experiment biomedical and information technologies. As techno-biological modeling replaces artists’ sensual experience, we come to feel rhetoric overcoming of anthropological bounds andpost-human liberation from biology which those artworks are based on. Participants of round table – artists, philosophers, journalists and culture experts – areoffered to discuss the question: is it possible to consider modern science-based technological practice as a resource of liberation or as a maleficentlure distracting us from socio-political issues of modern society?
Event runs in framework of the exhibition INTERNET-EAR by Stelarc.
