Other Futures


Bringing mammoths back to life? Your brother became a PhytoZombie? Fluid identities, nomad identities, meet in the metaverse. The oracle of delfos gave its last warnings. Fake-news? Sixth mass extinction, you don't know anymore with which species to hybridize? What if coherence was only an obstacle, an old and obsolete artifact, which would not allow us to think about identity today?

A performance/talk on the transformation and hybridization of species with: artist and choreographer Rocio Berenguer (SP), known for her G5 conference: the first interspecies conference at which not only people made presentations but also an animal, plants, robots and a meteorite. With G5, Berenguer used a mix of theatre, new media and science to investigate ways of respecting other forms of life on earth.

Middle East-rooted, Swiss-trained and Paris-based Max Mollon, a designer and conflict facilitator who uses design fictions to spark debate. What needs to be dismantled today to emancipate certain futures from the oppression of the dominant narrative propagated by Western societies?

HYBRI_DATE is part of the four CIRCLE TALKS presented by Other Futures in which urgent topics are discussed with participants from different disciplines, removing the boundaries between experts and audience.
