October 23rd – November 3rd 2018
For the Un_becoming group exhibition, taking place October 23rd – November 3rd, 2018 (coinciding with the Berlin PornfilmFestival), SomoS presents performative projects and ephemeral installations as critical and radical responses to themes such as the overlapping of sexualized and gendered bodies with technology; and the intersections between transhumanism and critical posthumanism with technology, pornography and eroticism. Un_Becoming aims to present the spectrum of darkness and lightness that interweaves dystopian and utopian perspectives on our technologically mediated view of sexuality and society.
