Book Launch »Driving the Human«

To the exhibiton »Driving the Human – Seven Prototypes for Eco-Social Renewal«

Sat, June 17, 2023 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm CEST

The new book release documents all the milestones of the three-year project and contextualizes and expands the discourse on the various issues at the heart of »Driving the Human«. We invite you to the Book Launch.

»Driving the Human: Seven Prototypes for Eco-Social Renewal« combines thought-provoking essays and conversations with powerful images and visual language. The book features contributions by Kim Albrecht, Brigitte Baptiste, Jan Boelen, Corine Pelluchon, Peter Weibel, and many others. The publication is published in collaboration with Mousse Publishing and distributed worldwide both online and in stores.

To celebrate the book launch and the final steps of the project, Driving the Human went on a book tour of several European cities. From Lisbon to Milan and Venice to Berlin, events featured lively debates about the three-year process of »Driving the Human«.

The book tour will conclude in Karlsruhe with a book launch at the ZKM as part of the installations of »Human Bacteria Interfaces« and »Monsters and Ghosts of the Far North« which will be presented alongside the exhibition »Renaissance 3.0.«
