With The Assembled Human, the Museum Folkwang inquires into the ambivalent relationship between humans and machines. It’s a conflicted relationship, fluctuating between utopia and nightmare, and it still influences our present time. From the conveyor belt to cybernetics and today’s digital revolution, from Cubism, Futurism, and Constructivism into the recent present with Ed Atkins, Jon Rafman, Avery Singer, or Anna Uddenberg, the show traces the transformation of technology, presenting a wide panorama of artistic visual worlds: human beings as hybrid creatures, blended with their own self-made machines.

Featuring 200 works by 100 artists as well as prolific essays, this extensive catalogue goes in-depth into this highly current issue. Text in German and English.
