The digital revolution and the development of biotechnologies place humanity at a turning point where ethical questions take centre stage. The exhibition’s Inventive and humorous museography combined with immersive and artistic staging are designed to question our own limits…and beyond!
I AM AN EXCEPTIONAL ANIMAL
A number of contemporary artistic installations pose the question of what is specifically human. A major audiovisual display introduces us to the controversy: is Man an animal like other animals?
I AM A CHAMPION
The exhibition decodes the desire of Man to surpass his limits. An interactive training area gives visitors an opportunity to transform their appearance, before learning more about athletes who have pushed back their physical limits…but also their mental ones.
I AM A CYBORG
Prosthetics, exoskeletons, implants, connected objects… A great variety of devices in the field of man-machine are illustrated in this part. A humorous film decodes the contradictory positions of “bio-conservatism” and “technoprogressivism”.
I AM A MUTANT
In a scenic laboratory setting, visitors are invited to create the “perfect” baby through genetic manipulation of the embryo. A novel experiment which questions the use of biotechnologies and their ethical dimensions…
I AM IMMORTAL
A mix of objects from ethnographic collections, contemporary art, folk art and mysterious special effects, this part of the exhibition examines the quest for immortality throughout human history, and one of its recent variations: trans-humanism.
WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE!
A dramatic setting takes visitors to a situation of collapse: a cinematographic apocalypse or the 6th crisis of biodiversity? But then, what can be our shared vision for the future? Audio and interactive devices accompany our reflection on this vast question
