April 2019
In her academic paper “The Concept of Nonhuman Subjectivities. Current artistic practice in posthumanism” Regine Rapp introduces the concept of Nonhuman Subjectivities by means of selected current artistic positions that place nonhuman organisms – animals, plants, fungi – at the centre of their work. The authors of this volume show the role of mimesis as imitation of nature in design. The contributions address topics as diverse as the design of virtual spaces in computer games, the sustainable production and disposal of clothing, and the imitation of animals and their behaviour in contemporary performance art.
