Inevitably, we deal with mortality in times of a pandemic. However, human life has taken on a completely new meaning not only as a result of the current situation. According to the latest scientific knowledge, death is no longer a divine decree, but rather a technical problem. The international group exhibition examines the human condition with regard to a future existence. The participating artists dare to try to think beyond the finite to the superhuman. In this project, invisible lines of molecular biopower, self-optimization processes, and the prospect of eternal life are discussed in a multi-layered way.
