The Anthropocene is no longer just theory, but has become a part of today’s life experience. Set against this epoch-defining backdrop, the ongoing project The Shape of Things to Come traces current developments in various formats, spaces and time dimensions. In the form of an innovative ‘blue sky’ think tank, it is interdisciplinarily accompanied by actors from artistic fields as well as by scholars from the humanities and natural sciences. Considering the impacts of climate change and the effects of an increasingly unbridled economy, the project takes the human-induced transformation of nature as a starting point for a series of open experiments.
