Less Human

Are we becoming 'less human' in a world of climate crisis? Shaped by changing environments, bodies slowly mutate. Along with physicality, our sense of humanity takes turns. There is a notion of the future where we are rethinking the possibilities for coexistence with other species while simultaneously questioning if we have ever been privileged over nature.

The exhibition Less Human addresses a number of issues raised in the field of ecological ethics such as climate change, land and water pollution, losses in biodiversity. Through the exposition, the viewer discovers a tension between parallel antagonistic approaches: human dominance on the planet and posthumanism critical perspective with the emergence of alternative life forms and relations.
