The Anthropocene - an artist's rendition

We have already reported on the Anthropocene in this blog. The idea that we might be moving things in future deep time is inspiring and disturbing at the same time. The Haus der Kulturen der Welt has initiated a project working on cultural aspects of the Anthropocene, the "Anthropocene Project". The project is coming to a close now. The symposium of its working group will be broadcast live on Friday, 17 October 2014 starting from 0900 CET. The project put together an impressive lineup of speakers.

"Human Impacts and Their Consequences - A Forum on the Occasion of the First Meeting of the Anthropocene Working Group"

Friday, 17 October 2014 starting from 0900 CET
