Their official website notes, “The Posthumanist is a bi-annual, bi-lingual (English and German) magazine featuring art, design, technology and literature. Each issue will present one theme from various more-than-human perspectives, inviting readers to imagine what living together on planet earth is and could be. The idea for the publication emerged from a desire to discuss concepts and expressions of critical posthumanism and feminist new materialism in contexts outside of theory and to explore what inclusive futures could feel like.” The inaugural issue includes, “a ritual for interspecies connection, exclusive interviews with the world renowned artist Daria Martin and the leading behavioural sleep scientist Dr. Michael Grandner, poems and new pieces of art writing by the likes of Frank Wasser and Sharon Kivland. In the center of the magazine you find a calendar for the year, Ted Hunt’s Circa Flora, illustrated by Saoirse Eegan.”

As well as the performances and readings, drinks and nibbles are also promised. Tickets are free and can be booked through Eventbrite here.
