The Anthropocene Project

This sounds interesting: the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin is organizing an event called ‘The Anthropocene Project’ which takes as its core statement the ‘Anthropocene thesis, announcing a paradigm shift in the natural sciences as well as providing new thought models for culture, politics and everyday life [..] The basis for the Anthropocene as our current geological epoch rests on the claim that humankind is the driving power behind planetary transformation’.

Speakers include artists, theoreticians etc. such as Rem Koolhaas, Lorraine Daston and John Law.
