For the finale of the GLOBALE, we ask with Bruno Latour, Yuko Hasegawa and their exhibitions: What remains of the Modernity? How will we survive / live?
For the GLOBALE Finale, visitors will experience eight exhibitions, which deal with the global modern era – from a European, Chinese, Japanese and Arabic point of view. All eight exhibitions offer a coordinated interpretation of the world-changing developments of digitalization and globalization. What remains of the modern era after the catastrophes and cataclysms of the 20th century? How will we live or survive?
The Finale highlights the GLOBALE once again as a laboratory of ideas and creativity, which maps the possibility space of the future in many events and »Thought Exhibitions« (Bruno Latour) and gives us an idea of where the modern era could end up when it leaves the horizon of the global.
The bracket from the start of the GLOBALE, the tribunal about the crimes of the 20th century against mankind, animals and nature, as well as the epilog of the GLOBALE, the experimental symposium »Next Society – Facing Gaïa«, refers to the program of the ZKM after the GLOBALE. The two-day symposium (April 15–16, 2016) grapples critically with the state of the earth and throws up the question of how the world’s population will live in the future.
As a cooperative project, the ZKM is ending the GLOBALE with a brilliant closing weekend: As well as the opening of the exhibition »Reset Modernity!« by Bruno Latour, a number of curator discussions, tours, performances and concerts, such as the world premier of the latest piece by Adriana Hölszky for twelve drummers are also taking place.
