Nonhuman Nonsense challenges the consensus with speculative art-sci projects. Trough design and art, they open up the discussion and enable access to underlying layers of politics, ethics and metaphysics. In this third podcast in the series ‘Beyond Human Relations, Annika van den Born goes into conversation about how they transmute our relationship to the non-human, by embracing the contradictory and the paradoxical – telling stories that open the public imaginary to futures that currently seem impossible. Nonhuman Nonsense is founded by Leo Fidjeland and Linnea Våglund, it is based between Berlin and Stockholm.
