The World Without Us. Narratives on the Age of Non-Human Agents

Publication | 2017 | 22,00 €

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.
