Who is going (in)to Outer Space? With wich body(ies)? What
does space do to these bodies? Human flights, yes, but by
whom? Robots, of course, but of what kind?
With a new rover and a tiny helicopter to pursue scientific
research on Mars, a "blob" (/Physarum polycephalum/),
tartigrades and the re-activation of the greenhouse-lab
VEGGIE in the International Space Station, a triumvirate of
billionnaires playing "the right stuff", in 2021, the
extra-terrestrial activity has been riched and varied.
This research day brings together multiple and crossed
voices of artists, theorists and scientists for a new
approach to space in the Anthropocene era that takes the
body and beings in a multidimensional and evolutionary vision.
It addresses the question of the body in extraterrestrial
space understood as the human body in all its dimensions,
the body of living non-humans (animals, plants), the
surrogate bodies that are robots and celestial inorganic
bodies of asteroids and planets.
It intends to exemplify how artistic creation and scientific
research respond to each other, notably for reflection on
the mutations and hybridizations of new forms of living and

The research day "Which Bodie(s) in/for Space?" is part of
the research project "Extension of the field of The Living
and Open Intelligence".
It is *co-organised* by Leonardo/Olats,**the TEAMeD
Laboratory of Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis University, the
Research University School ArTeC and the CNEAI ; *in
partnership with *La Diagonale Paris-Saclay and FEMeeting

Foundation and the Canadian Cultural Centre.
This project has received Statesupport run by the Agence
