Anicka Yi & Hari Kunzru on art & the non-human
Anicka Yi makes work that fuses multi-sensory experience with synthetic and evolutionary biology to form lush bio-fictional landscapes. Utilizing a ‘biopolitics of the senses’, Yi challenges traditional approaches to both human and non-human perception, emphasizing olfaction, microbial and embodied intelligence, the sensorial ecology of intelligence and ‘biologized’ machines.
Hari Kunzru is the author of six novels, including Gods Without Men (2011), White Tears (2017) and Red Pill (2020). He is a regular contributor to the New York Review of Books and is the host of the podcast Into the Zone, from Pushkin media.
