Curator and theorist Jens Hauser explores the interaction of art and technology in relation to the transhistorical staging of “vitality”, including the use of bio(techno)logical media in art. He is currently working with Lucie Strecker on a special edition of the journal Performance Research entitled “On Microperformativity”. This keynote is part of the research project “Co-Corporeality”.
