Summary

HUMAN+, a new, ambitious, and sharply curated exhibition at the Centre for Contemporary Culture in Barcelona, delves into the contemporary meaning of being human. Hosting more than 50 works created by artists and scientists, the collection explores the technological strategies that we might use to transcend bodily and mental limits, our place in nature, and our social interactions, as well as redefinitions of birth and death. In this review, Giovanni Frazzetto highlights some of the exhibition's challenging and provocative exhibits.
