John Tresch: Cosmograms, or How To Do Things with Worlds
English original version
Keynote, Jan 12, 2013
What order does our world have in the Anthropocene? What do we believe in, and why? The sociologist of knowledge John Tresch looks at cosmograms, often millennia-old representations of the world and its order, to develop a cosmogram of the Anthropocene. Somewhere between romantic machines and a technique for losing own homeland. Taking off towards new worlds of knowledge.
