Partners and Team

The symposium is a joint collaboration between Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (HKW), the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin (MPIWG), and the Weisman Art Museum (WAM).

Mississippi. An Anthropocene River is developed and organized by HKW and MPIWG in collaboration with numerous international partners. It is a part of the Anthropocene Curriculum (since 2013), an international long-term project for experimental forms of Anthropocene research and education.

The project Mississippi. An Anthropocene River is a part of the „Year of German-American Friendship” initiative in 2018/19. The „Year of German-American Friendship“ is a comprehensive and collaborative initiative of the Federal Foreign Office, the Goethe-Institute, and with support ‎of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), highlighting the decades long relationship grounded in common values, interests, and goals.

The project Anthropocene Curriculum is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media due to a ruling of the German Bundestag.

Haus der Kulturen der Welt is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media as well as by the Federal Foreign Office.
