The exhibition »Our Loves Are Not Only Human« is dedicated to selected digital projects that have been produced over the past two years in the context of the Web Residencies by Solitude & ZKM. The works on display are concerned with the theme of collective care and responsibility. They demonstrate the necessity of developing alternative narratives and modes of action.
The participating artists Johanna Bruckner, Gary Zhexi Zhang & Agnes Cameron, Umber Majeed and Tiare Ribeaux enact a speculative future in which both human and non-human worlds are taken into account. The projects shown in the exhibition boost awareness of collaborative and more inclusive experiences, and stimulate the building of new relationships. Observers are invited to employ the power of the imagination in order to question current political power relations and structures.
During the opening Johanna Bruckner’s dance and media performance Sym-poetic Desires will take place, in which a speculative sex robot is presented through a physical staging in a polyrhythmic cyberspace with the aim of subverting technology-saturated world views of intimate relationships.
Curated by »Digital Solitude« (Inga Seidler, Denise Helene Sumi and Sarie Nijboer).
