TRANSFORMATIONS OF THE HUMAN (ToftH) IS DESIGNED TO BRING TOGETHER PHILOSOPHY, ART AND TECHNOLOGY IN A NEW PRACTICE WE CALL PArT.
ToftH was launched in late 2018, as a research program at the Berggruen Institute. Our goal has been to identify how technology disrupts the (19th century) philosophies we live by—and to make this disruption visible and available for technologists.
In late 2019, we expanded and added an art as research fellowship: We engage contemporary artists in conversations about how to explore the new realities/philosophical ruptures provoked by technology and then jointly exhibit their work.
Now, in 2021, with the generous help of Reid Hoffman, we are proud to announce that we add a third pillar to our work: ToftH school, an experimental seven-month curriculum, taking place at the new ToftH offices in the San Francisco East Bay.
Our school grounds in the insights we have gained through our projects with companies and artists and provides students with an education in PArT.
The ToftH School is deeply grateful to Reid Hoffman for his support of this cohort activity and the continued support and guidance of Nicolas Berggruen, founder and chairman of the Berggruen Institute, across all of the program’s activities.
TRANSFORMATIONS OF THE HUMAN (the “School”) admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. The School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
