The future of our species

Rome / Palazzo delle Esposizioni (Roma)

HUMAN+, The future of our species is a coproduction of the CCCB and the Science Gallery of Trinity College Dublin which, after visiting the ArtScience Museum in Singapore, arrives at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome, the largest interdisciplinary exhibition space in the centre of the Italian capital.

Taking into account emerging technologies, the works on show accompany spectators as they explore paths to the future of humankind: cyborgs, supermen and clones. Evolution or extinction? What does it mean to be human today? What will it mean in a hundred years? Mind, body and life continue to be modified, but are there limits that we shouldn’t go beyond? HUMAN+ looks at the 21st century, characterised by a series of sciences and technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics that raise ethical questions about people and their lives. The works of artists, designers and scientists guide visitors to unknown terrain: the configuration of our future, where each of the disciplines involved offers new perspectives.

The HUMAN+ travelling exhibition evolves and for the Roman version of it presents a new section Human, superhuman?, curated by Valentino Catricalà, that is added to the four existing lines of content: Augmented abilities, Encounters with others, Designing the environment and Life at the edges, all addressed by the artist Cathrine Kramer, the executive curator of the exhibition. The new artists present in the exhibition are: Paolo Cirio, Donato Piccolo, Roberto Pugliese, Quayola and the groups AOS and None.

Palazzo delle Esposizioni includes this unique show in its programme to construct new spaces for reflection where spectators can approach the challenges facing humanity from a fresh perspective, imagining what the future holds in store for us.
