Triggers: Introducing the Technosphere | Jürgen Renn
100 Years of Now. The Opening
2015, Sep 30–Oct 04
Jürgen Renn describes the technosphere as a space in which humanity’s metabolism with its earthly environment takes place. Since 1865 a factory using Justus Liebig’s patent to produce meat extract transformed the Uruguayan town of Fray Bentos into a landmark of agro-industrial globalization: one of the many original sites where the chemical laboratory, the world, and the Anthropocene meet half-way.
