Transhumanism: this term is still rather unfamiliar to most of us, even though it has been appearing more and more frequently in the media. It nonetheless comprises a set of practices that are already very present in our daily lives and which will undoubtedly become more widespread in the coming decades. These practices are part of a complex ideology – that of human enhancement –, which seeks, through technological interventions, to overcome the limitations peculiar to human nature and to “fabricate” our own utopian destiny: the posthuman.
Through the artistic works of Beb-deum (FR), Matthieu Gafsou (CH), Jean-Pierre Kaiser (CH) and students from the ECAL (CH), “Corps-concept” aims to reflect on the concept of the body implied by transhumanism, to highlight the paradoxes of this ideal of perfectibility and to contribute to the public debate by inviting you to take a nuanced approach when confronted with this contemporary utopia.
