Images of the Anthropocene

November 23rd, 2014

What images do we get if we try to go beyond aiming to depict the Anthropocene as a general phenomenon? How can we and our everyday practice be visualized?

As a preparatory task, seminar participants and instructors were asked to contribute an image with accompanying comment based on the seminar outline. The aim was to go beyond depicting the Anthropocene as a general phenomenon and idea. Presenting and discussing these individual images was one of the first activities of the seminar’s four workgroups—“Terra Forming,” “Anthropos,” “The Nonhuman,” and “Times—Before and After.”
