The Anthropocene Project
Algeria after 1954 Filmfestival
Between shiny high-tech, e-waste dumps, big data businesses and mass surveillance schemes: In the festival the image of afterglow is used as point of departure to explore our present post-digital moment as one where media technologies and mediatic practices that once were treasure(d) are turning into trash.
Generation integrates children and youth into the festival’s film-aesthetic discourse. At the same time the section is a place for encounters between people of all ages.
How can we narrate war at the start of the twenty-first century? What is it about experiences of extreme violence that makes it so difficult to comprehend and to narrate? What is the importance of describing the indescribable for the survivors and for the spectators?
Our notion of nature is now out of date. Humanity forms nature. This is the core premise of the Anthropocene thesis, announcing a paradigm shift in the natural sciences as well as providing new models for culture, politics, and everyday life. In a two-year project, HKW is exploring the hypothesis’ manifold implications for the sciences and arts.
