“Homo Deus”

Timeshare space VACATION welcomes Mobius Gallery from Bucharest, Romania, which is presenting this group show of seven Eastern European artist. Taking it’s title from Israeli author Yuval Noah Harari's 2016 tome, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, the exhibit focuses on the book’s themes, which include the idea that technological change in the 21st-century will permit humanity to attain godlike powers, including the ability to indefinitely extend life. This notion—along with Harari's contention that human beings are simply algorithms, reducible to code in a way that gives lie to the humanist concept of the self—informs the works here, which takes a mostly dim if resigned view of a future that seems inevitable.
