Grinders – an encounter with DIY cyborgs
In rural small towns in the United States hackers are working on merging man and machine. They develop devices and gadgets to implant into their own bodies, becoming guinea pigs of a transhuman future. Their risky experiments and strong faith into technology’s emancipatory potential challenges science, medicine and ethics equally.
Berlin-based photographer Hannes Wiedemann photographed the US-american bodyhacking community in 2015/16. The age-long myth of enhancement, the future, and innovation, today, is predominantly illustrated via an aesthetics of smooth interfaces; he counters with make-shift arrangements, dirty interiors, and ruthless high-resolution images of corporality.

Locations between the Spheres
The photographs of Andy Heller, Oliver Krebs and Jan Lemitz peer into the ‘in-between’, exploring places between worlds and offering a surprisingly intimate view of the fragmentations that characterize our time.
