VISION MÜNSTER
In the future of the future the world will be populated by artificial intelligence and/or by combined artificial-human beings. That these uber-beings will be evolving without pronounced mistakes and aberrations, almost imperceptibly – well, we can bluntly doubt that. The path towards Human 3.0 will bring us numerous creatures which, from an ethical point of view, we will hardly be able to get rid of as technological scraps.
And as the fufuture will be preceded by a simple future, the latter will be an era massive struggles with techno-primates, which may represent an inevitable stage of development but which, at the same time, could endanger a development from the inside.
This is the starting point of the Münster Vision: the taming of the circuits and the injection of humanity for beings preceding humans with the help of the tenderness of art. At the new LWL Museum of Art and Culture a specially developed space with a primates’ course, based on the “long-wide-leash programme”, will go on display for the first time.
Here the process will be tested in experiment, studied scientifically and made physically tangible.
Here we push the window to the future wide open.
