Where do we live? Where can we land?

There is an existential threat to our collective conditions of existence. There are no tools yet, but to address these problems and one way to map this new Earth is to understand it as a network of »Critical Zones«. Although human activity is barely visible at the planetary or universal scale, it is hugely disruptive in the thin, fragile, and highly complex layer that is the habitat upon which all life on Earth depends. Can we engage with our habitat in other ways? And can we work together to become »terrestrial« – to build a common ground? This section explores how we can learn how to live within the Critical Zones.


This festival was organized by the ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe and the Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe
