Veronika Volkova told the participants of the meeting a summary of Rosi Braidotti’s book: Posthuman.

„The Gaidar Institute publishing house published a book by Rosi Braidotti, a philosopher and feminist, professor at Utrecht University, and also the head and founder of the Center for the Humanities at Utrecht University. This work is devoted to the study of the phenomenon of posthumanity – technocracy and digitalization, modern bio- and necropolitics, problems of humanism and posthumanism.“

Briefly about Veronika Volkova, Architect at LAVA (Laboratory for Visionary Architecture), Berlin, Deutschland

I aim to approach architecture as a form of a participatory art that provides people with a space for realizing the total freedom of self-realization.
An architect can inspire playful interactions between people and their environment by transforming a building or urban space into a sandbox. Architecture that approaches the users in a sensual and fun way makes people conscious of their environment and reinforces their emotional correlation with it. An inventive spatial conceptualization helps people to approach surroundings with an innovative attitude.
