Welcome to the Anthropocene! Agriculture, trade, transportation, and industry: As long as humans have existed we have been utilising and altering our environment. Industrialisation, in particular, has contributed to the
unmistakable and often irreversible fingerprint that we are making upon the Earth. Today, the human imprint is so deep and pervasive that scientists, policymakers, and society are considering whether human-caused changes are
affecting the geological record over the long term - whether we are, in fact, living in a new geological era.
The catalogue accompanying the exhibition explores the concept of the Anthropocene. It looks at the complexity of human influence on the Earth and how this is reflected in urban development, mobility, energy, climate, food,
nature, and global justice.
In the essay section, contributions by distinguished scholars discuss the history of the concept of the Anthropocene, its characteristics and consequences, and life in the Anthropocene both today and in the future, as well as
the importance of the idea for education, research, and museums. Artistic and literary contributions offer new ways of looking at the changing relationship between humans and nature. Finally, a "making of" section explains the
design choices and guiding principles behind the exhibition.
The richly illustrated catalogue section presents objects from the exhibition, creating a many-sided picture of the Anthropocene and underlining our responsibility for The Earth in Our Hands.
