The field of design has radically expanded. As a practice, design is no longer limited to the world of material objects, but rather extends from carefully crafted individual looks and online identities, to the surrounding galaxies of personal devices, new materials, interfaces, networks, systems, infrastructures, data, chemicals, organisms, and genetic codes.Focused on post-labor, psychopathology, and plasticity of human mind and body, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, Korea, MMCA, organized a Superhumanity symposium in Korea, consisting of lectures and panel discussions by experts from diverse disciplines, ranging from design and architecture to science, media, history, philosophy, and contemporary art. This book introduces essays by these experts, whose insightful presentations and followed conversations are resonated as a compilation. Faced with the fourth industrial revolution, this book shed light on the necessity to recognize that manmade, artificial objects are continuously reshaping our daily lives, and thus to rethink the intimate and fundamental relationship between design and what it means to be human.
