Climate Anomie. Climate Turn. Change It. 2011

An international Exhibition will be organised, end of 2011, at ZKM | Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe (Germany) to address the most crucial scientific questions humanity is facing now to combat the effects of climate change. The exhibition will generate a call to the arms for all existent human creative energies not only to make human fallacy translucent, but to change it.

Art and Media Technology meet Climate Impact Research, generated by interdisciplinary insights based on social and economic dynamics, scientific scenarios, physical and mathematical models, and transdisciplinary findings.

Climate Anomie is a manmade catastrophe, caused and provoked by unbalanced, obsessive and deregulated pauperisation of resources of millions of years that are earth.

The anomie is guided by unscrupulous rich, organised nations supported by disproportionate and hazardous drifts of aimed techno- sciences and socio-economic biases.

Climate Turn: civilizations collapsing, empiric knowledge, aleatoric wisdom, the unknown unknown, diversity vanishing; human beings being adrift.

After having been illuminated by the Copernican Principle we have to face the task to raise humanity to be capable to disclose a new equilibrium in harmony with the universe, giving us the liberty to sense heterogeneous, but also decoherent and entangled perceptions, permitting flow of consciousness not destroying life.

The DVD of the planned exhibition will be presented on 29th of September 2009 at 2:00 p.m., Room 6 at the panel discussion on "Art and Climate Change". It shows ten minutes of the forces attacking the earth and ten minutes of creative forces counter- attacking.

An international board of intellectuals of high renown will be set up who will discuss the topic with transdisciplinary competence.
