Partners and Team

The Shape of a Practice is supported by the Federal Foreign Office in the framework of The Anthropocene and its implications for archives and museums and by the Minister of State for Culture and the Media due to a ruling of the German Bundestag. It is part of the Anthropocene Curriculum which is being developed by HKW and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, in collaboration with numerous international partners.
