The Anthropocene Project


Basic Cultural Research using the Means of Art and Science

Our notion of nature is now out of date.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 (2013/2014), HKW explored the hypothesis’ manifold implications for the sciences and arts. Cooperations and events in Berlin and all over the world continue the debate on the Anthropocene.
