Materializing the Medium. Staging the Age of Humans in the Exhibition Space

Zurück zum Heft: ZMK Zeitschrift für Medien- und Kulturforschung 9/1/2018: Mediocene



The article takes the world’s first exhibition on the geological and philosophical concept of the Anthropocene, »Welcome to the Anthropocene «, Deutsches Museum (2014-2016), as a starting point for initial theoretical reflections on the potential and limitations of exhibitions as media and designers of the Mediocene. On the basis of a discussion of image deployment, use of space and the materiality of objects, exhibitions are analyzed as ›slow media‹.
