Planetary Futures

Planetary Futures is a series of research studios that include two campuses for HKW; one conducted in 2016 the next in 2020. As well as a planetary futures summer school, held in August 2017, with more planned. We propose one of the first large scale collaborative research-creation and education projects integrating arts and design, the social sciences, and media studies, to conduct multi-sited artistic, ethnographic, philosophical, and historical research and creation on the material ways that designers, researchers and entrepreneurs negotiate the future, and translate ideas of  life, speculation, and temporality into technology and the built environment.
