To the exhibition »Driving the Human – Seven Prototypes for Eco-Social Renewal« (Part 2)
Sat, August 12, 2023 , Day of Action

The exhibition »Driving the Human – Seven Prototypes for Eco-Social Renewal« presents concrete models for sustainable coexistence in three parts. 

On each of the first Saturdays of the three sections, the ZKM | Karlsruhe offers a comprehensive accompanying program that invites visitors to engage with the topics themselves. 

»Sharing Knowledge on Common Ground«

In the next part of the exhibition, we explore how we can use already existing resources for change.

»Sedekah Benih« by Vincent Rumahloine and Mang Dian uses the chilli plant as a breeding ground for interdisciplinary exchange in society. Akwasi Bediako Afrane's »Trons 'R‘ Us« explores the relationship between humans, technology and the environment. And »Virtual Sanctuary for Fertilizing Mourning« by Eliana Otta shares knowledge from and about deceased indigenous environmental activists and offers a platform for collective mourning.
