Abstract

The first step was to define the posthuman. This study is particularly focused on some art works and movies to try to recognize what are their implica-tions on the weaving of the collective imagination, referring to the visual dimension of a coming fu-ture. The report continues with the analyses of the film Gattaca (1997), directed by New Zealander An-drew M. Niccol, and of artworks by Cypher (2009), which contain an explicit reference to Niccol’s film and GFP Bunny/Alba (2000), both created by the art-ist Eduardo Kac. The works of these two authors and the relations between them become the main referential axis for examination of the construction of an imaginary of transformations in the parental relationship and, more generally, in social relation-ships associated with artificial genetic revolution
