With great pleasure we announce our plans for 2021-2024: ‘Hello, Superorganism’.
Our human presence has a huge impact on the planet; plastic in the oceans, climate change, mass urbanization and deforestation. We have entered the Anthropocene epoch, an age where humanity and its instrumentalities are the most potent and influential geological force. Simultaneously there are many other organisms that are asserting themselves: networked micro-organisms, an internet of trees and artificial intelligences that guide our lives. What can we learn from non-human organisms? Are humans the dominant species? With the theme 'Hello Superorganism', we explore a path to the future that is not only satisfying to humans, but to all other species on Earth.
