30.08.2016 -

Moderna Museet Malmö and Malmö University welcome you to THE NEW HUMAN Symposium, in which the invited speakers Patricia MacCormack, Sverre Raffnsøe, and Susan Kozel will give us further insights into the times we live in, and towards what future we might be heading. In connection to the symposium, Moderna Museet Malmö will host the world premiere of Ursula Mayer’s new film, Atom Spirit.

THE NEW HUMAN Symposium explores what it really means to be human

We live in an era in which human activities have come to have a profound impact on Earth’s geology and ecosystems, and in which mind-boggling technological progress is raising the question of what it really means to be human. In nanoscience, the border between biology and technology is getting increasingly blurred.

Global digitalization has fundamentally changed our way of relating to the world around us and to each other, and the dividing line between actual and virtual reality is dissolving. Some researchers even claim that we are heading towards an era in which technology has grown so complex, intelligent, and self-generating that humans will no longer be able to control it.

Moderna Museet Malmö and Malmö University (Medea and K3) welcome you to THE NEW HUMAN Symposium.
