Not fully human, Not human at all

The project Not Fully Human, Not Human at All looks into processes of dehumanization that are are taking place in Europe. Dehumanization is generally understood as the degradation of human life, that human beings inflict upon each other. The artists taking part in the project question the the obsolete category of the human, by imagining concepts from a new vocabulary of the process that can be called re-humanization.

Das Projekt Not Fully Human, Not Human at All befasst sich mit den sich derzeit in Europa abspielenden Prozessen der Dehumanisierung. Dehumanisierung wird im Allgemeinen als die Entwürdigung des menschlichen Lebens verstanden,die von Menschen aneinander begangen wird.Die am Projekt teilnehmenden Künstler*innen hin-terfragen die veraltete, mittlerweile obsolete Definition des Menschsein, indem sie Konzepte aus einem neuen Vokabular der Prozesse ima-ginieren, die als Re-Humanisierung bezeichnet werden können.
