Belen Cerezo: HOW TO BECOME A POSTHUMAN June 11, 2022 – November 27, 2023. Due to the interrelated ecological, pandemic and economic crises, we see that humanity and its anthropocentric way of living on a damaged planet is in need of urgent change. The digital exhibition How to Become a Posthuman is a first step and presents the initial outcomes of the ongoing transdisciplinary artistic research project Fabulation for Future. The sympoietic project began with a compelling call for participation to which numerous emerging international artists and philosophers were invited. Participants were to take on a fictive deputyship in order to perform together as an International Committee to Save the Earth through Speculative Fabulation. In a 9-month collaborative process, the artists-deputies explored in real terms what speculative fabulations can do to save the planet. They scrutinized whether, how, and by what artistic means a post-anthropocentric future can be shaped from the present. How can we rethink, reimagine and retell the earth as a habitat for all species with different spheres of life? How can we reconnect ourselves, these species and spheres in a non-anthropocentric way? How to Become a Posthuman is dedicated to fabulations, projections and thoughts that open up possibilities for agential performativity – an explicit “call for action” that highlights artistic creative power as an important factor for future processes of transformation.

This annual exhibition of artist’s books and printed matter is an initiative that emerged from the confines of academia to create links between various educational centers around the world and to provide a meeting place for printmaking and the publishing and design of books.
