Post Me_New ID
An action research project with a focus on the future of the body
In 2007-09 a collaboration between body>data>space (London, UK), CIANT (Prague, Czech Republic) TMA | Trans Media Academy (Dresden, UK) and KIBLA (Maribor, Slovenia) looked to examine the complexity of 21st century European human identity – with an exploration of the evolution of cyborg culture through technologies of the body, supported by the EU Culture 2007-2013 programme. The 4 organisations worked closely together to identify and investigate the challenges this poses to contemporary creation and the emergent artistic practices.
The final output from this project is a Book containing essays and reflections from many of the artists involved in this project plus the keynotes and panel conversations resulting from the Post Me_New ID Forum at CYNETart_08 in Dresden. The focus was particularly engaged in Multi-Identities and Networked Creation Processes in today’s world.

Post Me_New ID examined the complexity of 21st century European identity through an exploration based on the effect of digital technologies of the body and identity. A series of debate led Research Engines took place with a Forum and Book as the end products. In addition a series of Creation Processes resulted in the public Installation / Performance “DARE WE DO IT REAL-TIME?”.
DARE WE DO IT REAL-TIME?
