And having raised humanity above beastly level of survival struggles, we will now aim to upgrade humans into gods, and turn Homo sapiens into Homo deus. 

– Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow

“Art Science & Cocktails” are a social event series initiated by i/o/lab and curator Hege Tapio. The concept seeks to create a mingling opportunity for researchers, artists, students and other interested. During these events, scientific and artistic inspirations are presented as short talks while exquisite cocktails are served on the side.

Art Science & Cocktails : Dangerous Edition is the closing event of the Dangerous Futures Conference and a wrap-up of the two month long Meta.Morf Biennale 2018.

This dangerous edition takes its inspiration from Yuval Noah Harari’s suggestions for “the next human agenda”, – that according to the writer are: immortality, happiness and divinity. And if fighting the wars and hunger are really no more on the top of the humanity’s to-do list, what should art and artists focus on? Let’s find out from the invited speakers – what’s on our agenda today?
