Flowing Around the World
Architect Theo Deutinger will highlight the actions that human beings have been carrying on on the planet for the past 500 years
The talk will focus on the past 500 years of human action on planet earth. This is the time from the first documented circumnavigation of planet earth to the now and here – the time from discovering the spherical space we inhabit till the time we endanger exactly this discovery. Together we can discuss about today’s global flow of goods, people and information as part of the system of the new international division of labor (NIDL). A system that benefits largely from cheap fossil fuel and global inequalities in political rights and income.
The lecture will be led by Theo Deutinger from The Department (Flachau, Austria).
