In his manifesto "The Future", anthropologist Marc Augé states an increasingly conflict-laden division of the global population into three groups: “a few powerful, a mass of rich consumers and the great army of those who are excluded from labour and commodities. In the context of increasing social inequality and ecological crises, Augé argues for a renegotiation of the old question of the status of human beings in the world alongside local, national and global justice and solidarity. The interdisciplinary workshop addresses this thematic field through the lens of the controversial concepts of the Anthropocene/Capitalocene/Chthulucene. (Pre- and Post-) Anthropocene conceptions of humanity (transhuman, posthuman, more-than-human, of many species) and practices are negotiated with a focus on different socio-spatial contexts (e.g. urban, rurban, maritime, terrestrial) in which these are performed and executed.
