Transhumanism, existential art and Russian diamonds

Can early 20th century existentialist artists inform 21st century transhumanist thinking and the accelerating H+ movement.


Can early 20th century existentialist artists inform 21st century transhumanist thinking and the accelerating H+ movement. The talk and following discussion will seamlessly enhance through quantum soup, existential ground and shock levels to the post transhuman future where you’ll be choosing your favorite art work from the Tates walls. Will the mystique of the authentic original decrease or increase in value or importance in a world of atom scale nano assembelers?
