Hi all,

If you are in Basel on Oct 31st come along & say hello...

Lecture series 'Frankenstein' in the 21st Century | Marc Garrett
(University of London)

At University of Basel.
Lecture series 'Frankenstein' in the 21st Century.
By Marc Garrett (University of London).

Lecture from 6.15 - 8pm
October 31st 2018.
University of Basel. Department of Languages and Literatures.

Marc Garrett's presentation is a contemporary take on Mary Shelley’s
Frankenstein and asks us to reconsider her warning, that scientific
imagining and all technologies have unintended and dramatic consequences
for the world. It also invites us to ask the same about the arts and human
imagination. Shelley’s classic, gothic horror and science fiction novel,
has inspired millions since it was written 200 years ago in 1816, and then
published anonymously in London in 1818. It offers a lens through which to
look at the practices of arts and sciences today and how they shape
society’s relationship with technology.

The presentation considers the roles of our arts and science traditions and
examines these issues as part of everyday life; as they are played out in
the anthro­pocene, climate change, gender politics, ethics, governance,
surveillance, posthumanism, transhumanism, hacking, biohacking,
colonialism, post-colonialism, neoliberalism, biopolitics and
accelerationism. Dr. Frankenstein plays the role of the Promethean
scientist, a creative genius, and also a narcissist tangled up in his own
individual desires, exploiting others in an irresponsible and abusive drive
to control nature. But, who is the real monster?

Marc Garrett is co-director and co-founder, with artist Ruth Catlow of the
arts collective Furtherfield (a gallery and a Commons lab, both situated in
the park, in Finsbury Park, London), that began on the Internet in 96. He
has curated over 50 contemporary Media Arts exhibitions and projects, both
nationally and internationally. He is the main editor of the reviews,
articles and interviews on the Furtherfield website and has written book
chapters and articles about art, technology and social change, most
recently in Artists Re:Thinking the Blockchain (Torque Editions and
Furtherfield, 2017, ed. with Ruth Catlow, Nathan Jones, and Sam Skinner).
And Artists Re:Thinking Games (Liverpool University Press, 2010, ed. with
Ruth Catlow and Corrado Morgana). He is currently in the last year of his
PhD in Art History at the University of London, Birkbeck College.
