163 “If There is a Risk Inside of Me, I am the First Person who Should Know About it .” – Images of ‘Genetic Risks’ as Anticipation of the Future ANDREA ZUR NIEDEN Genetics can be seen as a technological anticipation of the future. Medi- cal genetic testing for predispositions is currently used to determine the probability individuals have of developing illnesses such as breast and ovarian cancer during their lifetime. This in a way makes genetics a new form of soothsaying. Based on my fieldwork in genetic counselling centers, I will focus on

movement from place to place to migration as installing movement within place. Migration not only takes place between places, but also has its ef fects on place, in place. In brief, we suggest a view on migration in which place is neither reified nor transcended, but »thickened« as it becomes the setting of the varie- gated memories, imaginations, dreams, fantasies, nightmares, anticipations, and ide- alizations that experiences of migration, of both migrants and native inhabitants, bring into contact with each other. Migration makes place overdetermined, turning it

everyday users. This creates a new kind of self-reflexive relationship to intimate presence. When first using PplKpr, the application creates an overriding sense of anticipation. How will it measure this approaching social encounter? What will I feel? What insights will I gain? However, anticipation soon yields to disap- pointment when one realises that a social interaction cannot be reduced to a single measurement of a physiological mood state, which appears as one small, ambiguous part of a much larger and complex phenomenon.

This subject is not a supra-individual entity, i.e. a subject containing more than one concrete individual. Adorno specifies the collectivity as pertaining to a subject that is of “collective essence”65. This collective essence of which the artwork reminds us is “simultaneously always the anticipation of a con- dition beyond

, as there is remarkable anticipation of a robotic and Tiina Männistö-Funk & Tanja Sihvonen60 artificially intelligent future for the humankind, these kinds of power positions are more important than ever to acknowledge and act upon. The issues related to gender and intersectional otherness are at the core of the conceptual and cultural questions linked to human-like machines and their agency, and therefore they cannot be ignored any longer.

His anticipation of the need for such documentation, translation, and defense of his re-imagined compliance reveal much about the patient-doctor encounters our interlocutors describe. Clinicians are also demonstratively shown the ways in which technologies, such as a DIY APS, are assistive: they help to manage patients’ daily diabetes care routines and “empower” patients to refigure the demands that caring for diabetes makes on their lives
