The presence of the cyborg in contemporary times, as understood by the biologist and philosopher Donna Haraway in Antropologia do Ciborgue (2009), brings with it a set of signs that make up our world. Among these signs are transgender operations that the anthropologist and poet Luís Quintais criticizes in the work Uma arte do degelo (2015) by means of the performative effect of bio-art. However, when we compare this effect with the concept of disturbatory art of the philosopher Arthur Danto, present in the work The Philosophical Disenfranchisement of Art (1986), the ethics of bio-art as proposed by Quintais weakens in vitality. However, this article resorts to imaginary of the writer Fausto Fawcett in the work Favelost (2012) as way of dialoguing with the theorists present in this research in order to open perspectives to new worlds for the post-human.
