Forecast presents Driving the Human: Seven Prototypes for Eco-social Renewal

Foreceast presents Driving the Human, a three day festival taking place between November 25–27, 2022 at Berlin.

Driving the Human will have a three-day festival from November 25-27, 2022, as the culmination of three years of collaboration, research, and experimentation combining disciplines in the sciences and the arts. Forecast’s quiet green festival in Berlin presents seven physical prototypes that respond to our current global moment, offering new ways of perceiving and living the world.

The Seven Prototypes for Eco-social Renewal propose new ways to interact with one another and with the world around us, on the planet’s surface and beyond. They investigate how AI could mitigate rather than accelerate climate change; immerse us in new forms of making community through vernacular agricultural knowledge; use fiction as an imagination tool for new forms of multispecies conviviality; or use embodied connections to understand and change human impact in endangered territories. These seven prototypes, taken together, emphasize perspectives in which collaboration and interdependence are critical, decisive variables for existence and survival on our planet.

The festival brings together a variety of forms and guests to explore the many dimensions of these important concepts. Visitors can meet and discuss ideas with the creators of the seven prototypes over the course of three days via installations, conversations, workshops, performances, and other experimental formats. From philosophers to biologists, a group of renowned worldwide specialists will propose in-depth investigations of the storylines and perspectives brought together on this occasion. Visitors will be able to hear the polymorphous sounds of Marina Herlop and Low Khey during a concert evening. Finally, three LINA platform-related initiatives will share their findings.

Participants include: Akwasi Bediako Afrane, Anne-Sofie Belling, Tatiana Bilbao, Daniel Cremer, Bea Delgado Corrales, Lena Geerts Danau, Sarah Donderer, Sandra Fendl, Mang Dian, Washington Fajardo, Marina Herlop, Julia Ihls, Hyeseon Jeong, Susanne Kadner, Romy Kaiser, Low Khey, Koyo Kouoh, Freo Majer, Vera Meyer, Hemal Naik, Paula Nerlich, Eliana Otta, Corine Pelluchon, Suzanne Pierre, Andra Pop-Jurj, Xiaoyu (Iris) Qu (曲晓宇), Anton Rahlwes, Margit Rosen, Vincent Rumahloine, Vera Sacchetti, Martina Schraudner, Yuri Tuma, Seongmin Yuk, among others.
