Is the historical event described in Heidegger’s philosophy something we can endeavour to bring about, or will we have to wait for it to be handed down to us?

How do we live well and ethically in our present technological fix? This is the key question when we interrogate Socrates’ technē, a posthuman theory for computational objects, and how to live and work in a technological-scientific world order. Conceptual, performative and absurdist artwork, curated by our guest editor Marjorie Vecchio explores how to live and die well in a multispecies symbiosis on a damaged planet.
