In hyper-normal hybrids the boundaries between man and machine have dissolved. Inside their nervous systems lies a strange but fascinating theme: the digital unconscious. Which forces act through algorithmic processes? What secrets are found in the shadowy realm of technology, welded to human nervous systems? How can the complexity of these relationships be described? What forms of access can cultural approaches offer? With S.M. Amadae, Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Cecilia Calheiros, Ewen Chardronnet, Critical Art Ensemble, Erik Davis, Graham Harwood, Eva Illiouz, Lydia H. Liu, Katja Mayer, El Iblis Shah, Felix Stalder, Michael Taussig, Peter Lamborn Wilson.
