John Cabot Philosophy Professor Stefan Lorenz Sorgner was invited to discuss the “Total Work of Art, Posthuman Music, and the Future of the Arts” with the ground-breaking contemporary composer Sven Helbig at the Future Laboratory Music in Stuttgart, Germany on January 27th. It is a massive public event organized by the city concerning all aspects of innovative types of music.

Sven Helbig is known for his musical creations which lie outside of traditional musical boundaries, as he has successfully cooperated with the Pet Shop Boys and Rammstein. He has also created works which can be considered musical dramas or symphonies.

A day before this event, Sven Helbig and Stefan Lorenz Sorgner will discuss related philosophical issues in a more intimate setting at the Conservatory of Music and Dramatic Arts in Stuttgart.

Professor Sorgner, a member of JCU’s faculty since 2016, is one of the world’s leading post- and transhumanist philosophers. He is director and co-founder of the Beyond Humanism Network and the Editor in Chief of the Journal of Posthuman Studies.
