Panel: Posthuman Embodiment and Material Entanglements — a Theoretical Outlook and Review

Recording of the panel "Posthuman Embodiment and Material Entanglements — a Theoretical Outlook and Review" from January 23, 2021, which was part of the symposium "Future Bodies from a Recent Past—Sculpture, Technology, and the Body since the 1950s".

In recent theories of posthumanism and new materialism, the body is described as a permeable, open system that is in mutual exchange with its environment. Biological, technological, and sociocultural influences shape and alter the body, and vice versa. This panel will address the aforementioned philosophical approaches and their suspension of the ontological difference between humans and their environment. Theoretical approaches, critical histories of development, and questions of application will be used to show how supposedly invisible technologies and artificial intelligences have always been embodied. The economic and biopolitical mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion of this mutual penetration of technology and body will also be discussed.
