In the ongoing frenzy of self-optimization, the natural properties of the skin seem like not enough. New technical developments are forcing the trend that more and more people will have high-tech gadgets implanted under their skin, subcutaneously, in the future - making the membrane that is the natural barrier between their physique and the outside increasingly permeable. What seems like a blessing to some is frightening to others - where are our limits? How does this development change our image of man?
The actors Olja Artes, Marcus Krone and Mohammad Saado Kharouf and the musicians Pía Miranda (trombone) and Peter Eisold (percussion & electronics) together with 12 citizens look at the topic of skin as a border between the inner and outer world and the beginning of a new epoch: the age of transhumanism.
