A performance compromising models that typify signs of future life forms, and live interaction between human beings and creatures from the future.

Reiner Matysik (Berlin) will give a preview of the fundamental, ®evolutionary changes that organisms will experience in the future. The presentation will include monsters, plants that have sexual power over people and living residencies.

The lecture will discuss the following themes: What is the best way to accelerate evolution? Which visions of future life forms have we been able to develop already? What explosion of life forms lies ahead of us? What kind of monsters will emerge from this leap into the unknown? The organisms will emerge from their existence – what can we do to release the – until now unused – full creative and devastating expressive potential of evolution? On the basis of numerous examples and realistic models, Reiner Matysik will present his findings. He will introduce potential organisms and describe the overwhelming power with which this fundamental breaking point will change our lives.
