Artist Talk with Pleun van Dijk
The next few months, Pleun van Dijk will be the Spring House artist in the house. Her work is on 'the future of procreation'. Over the past generations we have gone from 'sex without reproduction' to growing possibilities of 'reproduction without sex'. Sex becomes mere entertainment based on seduction and erotics, pleasure is the new norm. Meanwhile reproduction won’t be a so called “natural” proces any longer and the laboratory might become the womb of the future.
Scientific developments will create new opportunities to intervene in the biomedical process that will change the way humans are. We will have to redefine our own being, again and again.
During her time in Spring House, Pleun will research the (im)possibilities of the human as creator. During a lunch talk she will tell us about her project and start the discussion on the future of procreation.

Date: Thursday February 2nd
Time: 12:30 – 13.30
