The Posthuman Condition

In this lecture Professor Rosi Bradotti from Utrecht University outlines the main features of the so-called 'post-human' turn in contemporary cultural theory.

This theory focuses on three main concerns: firstly the fast-shifting perception of 'the human' at the intersection of advanced technologies, philosophies of the subject and the Life sciences. Secondly, the effects of economic globalization as a system that entails the capitalization of the informational codes of all that lives and that creates enormous economic and social disparities. Thirdly, the impact of wars, terrorism and conflicts in contemporary governmentality and the new forms of violence  they engender on a planetary scale. Last but not least, the lecture examines the implications of this historical context for transformative, affirmative politics in general and cultural practice in particular.
