The* 'Anthropocene Observatory'*, a project by the collective Territorial
Agency (John Palmesino and Ann-Sofi Rönnskog), with curator Anselm Franke
and artist Armin Linke, will present its latest film productions. The
observatory is a knowledge station, a constantly expanding reservoir which
pursues and documents the thesis of the 'age of man' and its political,
practical, institutional, and cultural formulation in, among other areas,
international climate policy. It examines past and present practices of
calculating, planning, modeling and managing dynamic processes, which have
been devised in an attempt to comprehend and control the earth. The
observatory enters institutions, laboratories, and workplaces worldwide
that are normally the operation area of specialists, where it portrays the
increasingly complex relationship between abstract models, concrete places,
and social organizations.

The screening of the 'Anthropocene Observatory' is being jointly organized
by the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi,
Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan, New Delhi, and Haus der Kulturen der
Welt/House of World Cultures, Berlin.
