During the course we get to know Joanna
Zylinska’s post-humanist media theory. Zylinska repositions the realm of photography not as a passive recording of the world but as an active process of shaping it. One-eyed author hero is extinct and replaced by a multi-sensuous networked subject whose expertise
is light-induced information mediation.


Through lectures and discussions with
professionals of  ecological curating, physical education, plant biology and artificial intelligence we keep returning to the question: What kind of art would take us towards the kinds of worlds we would like to live in?
