Additional Information:Globale Exo-Evolution is an exhibition curated by Peter Weibel at ZKM (Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe), Germany. The exhibition is part of the 300th birthday of the city of Karlsruhe. Scientists claim that we currently find ourselves in the anthropocene epoch, of which the human being is the most important influential factor in the earth’s biological, geological and atmospheric process. Institutions and individuals from around the world show how, today, they are already forming the future, continuing to make planet earth habitable for the human being. With the industrial revolution, the human has increasingly become the “freedman of creation” (J.G. Herder 1734–1791). He has stepped out of natural evolution into the self-made exo-evolution. The crucial question now, is how the freeman of nature can avoid being held hostage by the new information and military complex. Here, civic involvement, images of science and Big Data will assume a major role, as well as the themes of energy, resources and global health policy.
