The great acceleration is considered a turning point of the Anthropocene. Since 1950, the world as we know it has been changing rapidly. We need to slow down in order to understand what is happening, as the historian Libby Robin begins (03:00-14.00). By, for example, using museums as a source of critical knowledge, exhibitions as sites for deepening knowledge, as her colleague explains using the example of Munich’s Deutsches Museum ((14:00-23:00)—or by producing quite other forms (comics, for example. (Reinhold Leinfelder, as of 23:00)
