Adressing the current upswing of attention in the sciences, arts, and humanities to the new proposal that we are in a human-driven epoch called the Anthropocene, T.J Demos critically surveys that thesis and points to its limitations. To democratize decisions about the world's near future, we urgently need to subject the Anthropocene thesis to critical scrutiny and develop creative alternatives in the present. This lecture is followed by a discussion between T.J. Demos and Jeroen Peeters.

Galerie Thomas Zander is delighted to present an exhibition of works by the British artist Victor Burgin. Combining conceptual rigour with poetic ambiguity, the exhibition explores relations between space, memory and desire and shows Burgin’s historical progression from photography, to video, to computer modelling.
"Some Cities" is the title of a 1996 book by Burgin in which the artist recalls some of the cities he has known by showing photographs and telling anecdotes, yet moving beyond the anecdotal into an inquiry about spaces, places and memory.
