Abstract: The prevailing techno-anxiety of the information age, associated with the use of machines for the purposes of coercion and surveillance of humans, as well as with the loss of individual autonomy and control over one’s body and life, resurfaces as a central issue in the debate about the fate of citizenship. The political aspect of the future of humans as techno-centaurs is traced in several discourses focusing on military, surveillance and experimenter cyborgs, emerging in artistic events and science fiction movies.
