The World Without Us. Narratives on the age of non-human actors

Dortmunder U | 3rd Floor | 10/22/2016 - 03/05/2017

In „The World Without Us“ humans will be replaced by machines, Artificial Intelligences will be optimized by other AIs and algorithms will be programmed by self-learning algorithms. In this way a radically different, post-anthropocentric world could develop where non-human life forms would eventually prove to be better adaptable than humans. 

The artists in this exhibition explore the possibility of an ecology after man – an age of the post-Anthropocene, in which other “life” forms, such as algorithms, artificial intelligence, artificially created nanoparticles, genetically modified micro-organisms and seemingly monstrous plants, have taken control of the world.

This new era, which has already begun, albeit imperceptibly, is the age of non-human actors.

Artists: Morehshin Allahyari (IR) & Daniel Rourke (GB), Timo Arnall (NO), LaTurbo Avedon (US), Will Benedict (US/FR), David Claerbout (BE), Laurent Grasso (FR), Sidsel Meineche Hansen (DK), Wanuri Kahiu (KE), Ignas Krunglevicius (LT/NO), Mark Leckey (GB), Eva & Franco Mattes (IT/US), Yuri Pattison (GB), Julien Prévieux (FR), Suzanne Treister (GB), Pinar Yoldas (TR/US)
