3hd 2020’s “UNHUMANITY” festival week draws together what has already been months of events and remote projects as part of this year’s decentralized and dislocated festival structure, surfacing across the map. The “Vessels” evening of performances is one of two to happen in cooperation with HAU Hebbel am Ufer this year, exploring a system of human and non-human forces, built around an interconnected habitat of art, music, performance, digital culture, and its relationship to the more opaque idea of Nature Herself.
Happening on November 6, “Vessels” bridges technology, ecology and humanity through alternative ideas of bodies, using video game design and avatar-building aesthetics as artistic tools for generating political messages and imagining environments that center the experiences, concerns and perspectives of both artist and audience.
