What do material processes mean for the articulation of the world around us? Humans are not just in the world, humans also create the world. DEMONSTRATIONS, PRACTICES, and EXCHANGES bring together and engage with ways of knowing and doing. Artists, theorists, and scholars from around the world trace the impacts of human activity in the dynamic fabric of metabolic cycles and physical states, geohistorical events and planetary technologies.

A MATTER THEATER turns its attention to the reciprocity of earthly materials and political issues, that is, matter and matters. Accompanying the first meeting of the Anthropocene Working Group, and together with the cooperation of artists, theoreticians, and practitioners from around the world, a situational space of collaborative thought exercises, presentations, and workshops will develop at HKW.
