Imaging the Anthropocene
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 presented by Wolfgang Lucht and Philipp Oswalt; co-developed with Sverker Sörlin
How can the Anthropocene be illustrated, depicted? By asking Google, using models, asking artists for their participation? And is the Anthropocene not actually a co-production of billions of people and doesn’t that explode our imagination? A presentation around deep and flat powers of imagination, perception, metabolism, and the limits of vision. By Wolfgang Lucht and Philipp Oswalt.
Wolfgang Lucht is director of the Potsdam-Institut für Klimafolgenforschung and professor at the Geographisches Institut, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Philipp Oswalt is an architect, journalist, and artist, and teaches at several universities.
