In our nature: Repairing a broken bond with design, tech, science and art

In our nature: Repairing a broken bond with design, tech, science and art
Exploring the role of design, tech, science and art in an age of crisis with Curator Paola Antonelli (The Museum of Modern Art)
Through centuries, humankind has striven for the next, the renewed and most efficient. But, it has come at a cost. It has brought us into the age of the Anthropocene, the geological era where our bond with nature has been broken and human ego rules. We find ourselves amid a crisis and facing the looming prospect of extinction.

If the solution isn't to backtrack but to repair, how can art, design and science unite to create new ways for humans to collaborate, learn from and co-exist with nature?

In collaboration with The Index Project and Art Hub Copenhagen, join us online for 'In our nature' with Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator and Director of R&D at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Paola is a celebrated curator, author and avid speaker on the power of design, science and art and is recognised as one of the most influential people in the industry. She's behind the 'Broken Nature' exhibition at the XXII Triennale di Milano and recently launched Design Emergency with design author Alice Rawsthorn, which dives into designing for pandemics.

The live-streamed talk will be followed by a discussion (on location), where you together with participants from art, design, tech and science disciplines will talk more in depth about some of the key points. Snacks and drinks will be served at the end of the event
