The figuration of post-human bodies: a processual experiment with imaginaries

Agathe François

Abstract






This creative writing tries to analyse the current dominant figurations of post- human bodies, emphasizing their humanist, individual-centered and anthropocentric biases. It shows that these figurations rely upon a linear idea of time and a sealed perspective on the future. In order to imagine post-human bodies differently, I develop a collaborative research-creation project that challenges the individualist conception of problematizing and creating. One of the aims of this project is to ask what would be the conditions for the emergence of new figurations of post-human bodies. It will rely on a processual temporality allowing imaginaries to flourish without the constraint of a linear time.
