Die Welt Ohne Uns. Erzählungen über das Zeitalter nicht-menschlicher Akteure (The World Without Us. Narratives on the Age of Non-Human Agents)

Book | 2017

22,00 €

Two planets meet. One says: "Oh, you look bad." The other answers: "I have humans!" The first responds: "Don't worry, it will pass." This joke was told twice on the radio in connection with the opening of the exhibition The World without Us in October 2016. It's quite funny in a way, but doesn't quite get to the heart of the matter. "The World without Us" is an exhibition that asks what the world would look like if we subtracted the human factor, or rather, what are the non-human actors that are increasingly populating the world. The exhibition does not intend to conjure up a post-catastrophic scenario, but instead, "the world without us" is understood as the result of a gradual development that is already at work today.
