Frankenstein Reanimated presents a dynamic collection of artworks, essays, and conversations, addressing surveillance, biohacking, viruses, colonialism, digital culture, and more. It retraces and contextualises three international art exhibitions, at Furtherfield (UK), NeMe (Cyrpus) and LABoral (Spain), exploring themes within Frankenstein, and speculates on what Mary Shelley would think about the world today. Collectively, the book offers a lens through which to look at our current situation, and how art practices shape, and are shaped by, contemporary society.
“This collection shines a light on artists as critically engaged citizens providing a kaleidoscopic view on our unevenly distributed future. These are the Frankensteins we need!” — Felix Stalder, Zurich University of the Arts
“Frankenstein Reanimated is an important record of some incredible artists working today, who both dismantle and rebuild our contemporary technological systems, profoundly reimagining everything from facial recognition to AI, 3D printing to virtual gaming environments.” — Sarah Cook, University of Glasgow
