Group ExhibtionThe Five Facets of Humanity:
970 N. Broadway, Suite 208, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Meta-human, Inhuman, Nonhuman, Trans-human, Super-human
Questions about human nature and the values, goals, and ends that humans ought to actualize have always been at variance. Differences in understanding emerge not only about the being of humankind but also the ideals of humanity.
Answers to the questions about our human nature and humanity can be sought in five facets: by contrasting the human with the meta-human (the metaphysical), the nonhuman (the environment), the inhuman (negative human behaviors), the trans-human (future states of humankind), or the supra-human (conscious machines).
In each facet the question at issue and the basis for comparison is a different one: a transcendent difference from the metaphysical, a relative difference in consideration of humans’ embeddedness in complex ecosystems, an ethical difference with respect to the ideals of human conduct, an evolutionary difference between the present state of being and the future of becoming, and a typological difference between natural development and technological augmentation.
How is human nature to be defined and what are the ideals for which humans ought to strive in relation to each facet? For each facet the idea of humanity is to be defined differently.
These are the issues that a contemporary understanding of the idea of humanity must address. To do so is the objective of this exhibition.
