Project presentation of IT’S URGENT! curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist on the occasion of the Driving the Human Festival. The idea for the poster series »IT’S URGENT! Part II« was to create new, less predictable situations, eschewing classical exhibitions in favor of other modes of display and visibility, thus producing new forms of exchange, encounter and social space, opening up to new audiences. It is an exhibition model that Hans Ulrich Obrist started (with Christian Boltanski and Betrand Lavier) in 1993 with »do it«. Obrist presents his project and puts 62 posters of »IT’S URGENT Part II« on display.
On the occasion of Driving the Human Festival, Daria Mille (curator at ZKM) presents the exhibition Critical Zones. Observatories for Earthly Politics curated by Bruno Latour and Peter Weibel at the ZKM.
The awareness of an existential threat to our collective conditions of existence leads to the necessity of finding various ways of coping with Earth’s critical situation and reconfiguring how we orient ourselves. Exploring new modes of coexistence between all forms of life, the exhibition »Critical Zones« at ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe provides an orientation with which to discuss the ecological and sociopolitical challenges of our times.
