In the current period of accelerated motion our minds and bodies move, change and adapt to the settings and networks we navigate daily. We shape-shift while opening windows, closing folders and browsing through reflecting surfaces; soft borders permanently redefining our identities. As a consequence, any hypothetical separation between nature and culture has been dissolved, our natural environment becoming a cultural environment. Whereas the speculations grouped under object-oriented philosophy highlight a recomposition of the world that questions the centrality of the human and opens alternative ontologies for consideration, the anthropocene reframes mankind as a geological force. Such strands of thinking have added to the on-going crisis of modernism’s defining idea of humanity and nature as distinct entities. We are acknowledging our hybrid natural-cultural constitution as well as our state of permanent becoming as agents among other agents, a position expressing a co-extensivity with one’s surroundings in which all organisms are inter-dependent, forming a renewed eco-philosophical thinking that acknowledges our humanity in the midst of an intricate environment. Everything is connected, not only humans through heightened communication and other scientific and cultural developments but also the whole cosmos as a multiple unity. From the dissolution of previously stable conceptions of the world emerge renewed possibilities to articulate hopes and fears. This exhibition looks at how contemporary practices have been looking at our present situation as a moment of shift in which the correlation between object and subject or distinctions such as nature and culture are being surpassed and replaced for a conception of the world as an interlinked collectivity. Beyond apocalyptic scenarios or utopian visions, the artists included propose a reassessment of our current condition and look towards the future-present from an empowering stance that challenges boundaries. “Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed”. We are all together in this: one is becoming plural and intensely connected.
