The Anthropocene at HKW

From the Media Library

In the anthropocene world, humans are profoundly transforming the planet. Their technological infrastructures are inscribed in the deepest geological layers of the earth system. How do these interrelations affect culture, politics, and everyday life? What does this paradigm shift mean for the natural sciences, disciplines such as geology, archeology, or climate research? Actors from art, academia, and civil society are researching the implications of the new geological age from the model of the Great Acceleration to the technosphere, which spans the planet with its network of technological infrastructures, to the Mississippi as an exemplary topography of the anthropocene.
