Plasmata: Bodies Re-imagined is a series of conversations and debates taking place in the context of Plásmata: Bodies, Dreams, and Data, an outdoor exhibition at Athens’ biggest public park exploring the body – individual, collective, human, non-human, planetary – and how technology and technologically constructed worlds are shaping, affecting and impacting our bodies, identities and place in the planet.
Plásmata focuses on the body not just as the locus of subjectivity, but also as the field of identity, political, and social conflict, as the core of both pleasure and pain, and ultimately of our very existence.
Over two days of conversations, artists, scholars, authors and researchers are coming together to discuss what kind of bodies we are creating through technologies and technological worlds; bodies that are unequal, invisible, absent, controlled or defined by binaries. How are artists reinventing bodies and subverting online worlds? What kind of bodies are we envisioning, creating and engineering? Can new human manifestations – organic and machinic, human and non-human, integrated in nature, help us rethink humanness and envision multiple perspectives and equity across all forms of life?
The conference and the Plásmata exhibition has been curated by our FutureEverything Creative Director Irini Mirena Papadimitriou.
