Subject: Trans- and Posthumanism, Portrait

Work in Progress

In my artworks I’m dealing with the human being, mainly as a painter: posthumanism and transhumanism, also portrait.

I’m working on two series: Posthuman Studies (a concept of philosophy) and Transhuman Entaglement (Transhumane Verstrickung)

In my Posthuman Studies I’m referring to the classic, in particular of some works by the painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. A new interpretation of the portrait of Mme. de Rothschild  in different ways, sometimes serious, sometimes funny.

„Die Posthuman Series entspricht einfach dem Zeitgeist und bringt den kanonischen Werken von Ingres eine neue Dimension.“

„The Posthuman Series simply reflects the ZEITGEIST and brings a new dimension to Ingres canonical works“

My Series „Posthuman Studies after Ingres with the Portrait of Mme. de Rothschild and Mlle. Caroline Rivière“ is a bricolage attributed to Posthuman Thinkers like Rosi Braidotti, Donna Haraway and so on.

The Transformation of the Portrait de Mme. de Rothschild is my starting point.

In my Transhumane Verstrickung (I prefer the german version) I try to give a poetic version of the transhumanism. It’s a labour of bricolage, synthesizing posthumanism, cyberfeminism, materialist feminism, accelerationism, and so on.
