For our fifth artist talk at Soho House, join us for an evening with the artist collective Keiken. Tanya Cruz will offer a glimpse into Part 1 of Morphogenic Angels, their latest game – a love-story set 1,000 years in the future, where humans have morphic upgrades that organically re-engineer them to have transhuman capabilities – and speak with Spike editor-at-large Adina Glickstein about their multimedia production of speculative worlds.

Begins 19h on Friday 31 March 2023 at
Soho House, “Torstrasse 1” (second floor), Torstraße 1, 10119 Berlin
The bar will be open until 9pm

Keiken’s practice creates speculative worlds through filmmaking, gaming, installation, Extended Reality (XR), blockchain, and performance. They work across these mediums to explore how societal introjection governs the way we feel, think and perceive. Keiken are a winner of the Chanel Next Prize.
