Template:Transhumanism Transhumanist art is an art movement which focuses on the concept of transhumanity, a transitional stage in a perceived progression from human to transhuman to posthuman. Transhumanism was used by artists to question the traditional roles of the artist, the era of modern art and conventional aesthetics. Its proponents advocate future-oriented aesthetics, often reflecting transdisciplinary works in art, science and technology.


According to Zoltan Istvan, transhumanist art is a vehicle for pushing for a science-minded society.[1]

Characteristics and styles

According to Aaron Saenz, transhumanist art covers artificial intelligence (AI), genetics, cybernetics, and other disruptive technology.[2]

Transhumanist art can include architecture[3] and the works of scientists,[4] whose goals are transhumanist in scope.

Arakawa and Madeline Gins are transhumanist artist and architects who have had their work featured in the Guggenheim Museum SoHo.[5]
