Alison Sperling, Emiliano Guaraldo & Marco Malvestio – Veranstaltungsreihe

Lars Pinkwart

LOOPS is the event series of New Practice in Art and Technology in cooperation with the Berlin University Alliance, exploring current questions facing our society in a unique discursive format. Afterwards, the Bar provides a space for exchange between guests, researchers, students and the public. The accompanying LOOPS SESSIONS extend the series with workshops, performances and experimental formats.

As planetary modeling and visualization techniques advance, their effects extend beyond scientific knowledge production pervading the social and cultural domains of life. Alison Sperling (Assistant Professor at Florida State University), Marco Malvestio (Assistant Professor at University of Padua) and Emiliano Guaraldo (Postdoctoral Researcher at Ca' Foscari University Venice) joins us for a discussion on the critical significance of data extraction and scenario making as they shape social perceptions of the planet’s futures and humanity’s presence, or absence, within them. This process becomes particularly relevant in light of the Anthropocene paradigm and the many narratives challenging, expanding, and recentering this proposed “epoch of man”.
