Waiting Posthuman Studio is an interdisciplinary academic research platform across philosophy, urban planning, architecture and art that forces the horizon of the human being ontologically closed in on itself, inviting us to rethink our species beyond a static ontology towards a relational and dynamic ontology. Based on the MAI|Marina Abramović Institute’s model Waiting Posthuman is essentially “immaterial”.
Waiting Posthuman anticipates today the change wished for tomorrow starting from the body. The body as the site that hosts the complexity of relations and at the same time the site of coexistence of human contradictions. It is starting from the body that we start to define the relationship between our being and world surrounding us defining our ever evolving identity.
Waiting Posthuman creates passages where to experiment new forms of life starting from the margin. The margin between disciplines, the margine between bodies, the margine between species, the margin between city and nature. The margin as common ground, as a fertile place where to cultivate mutable, hybrid, evolving entities.
Waiting Posthuman is the idea of a borderless humanity hybridised with animals and nature and with technology. A borderless beast that starts moving in the realm of contemporary knowledge.
Waiting Posthuman is a network, not only academic, formed by an interdisciplinary team of researchers, philosophers, architects and artists, initiated and coordinated by Leonardo Caffo (University of Turin) and Azzurra Muzzonigro (Politecnico di Milano), in order to create the theoretical and practical tools to transform the future today while waiting together for a posthuman era. The website contains ongoing materials that explore posthuman performance and multidisciplinary practice.
