Empathic Cyborg



This talk has several versions. One contains various readings from my own texts. Common for them all is that they focus on the cyborg relation between humans and systems. Taking a thread from the ecological imagery of my novel MITOSE (the algae as molecular social structures versus the mycelium as networked cybernetic structures) on to my other novel NY1 as well as the DARK POOL play (taking in the nature of embedded catastrophes and human relationships within these, such as friendships for example) and further on to make an argument for a possible future expanded cyborg-empathy.

Held for the first time at The Writers School, Copenhagen (DK), later on it has appeared in different versions with more or less reading than talking, 2016.
