Anthropocene Curriculum

The Anthropocene Curriculum is a long-term initiative that explores frameworks for critical knowledge and education in our contemporary epoch—the Anthropocene. The project draws together heterogeneous practices of knowledge production and dissemination, inviting academics, artists, and activists from around the world to co-develop a new culture of capacity and awareness that responds to an unfolding global crisis.

Since 2013, the Anthropocene Curriculum has brought together international scholars, artists, scientists, and the public as a community for collaboratively and experimentally exploring the questions of knowledge and its production in the Anthropocene. In a series of intensive, weeklong educational events—in so-called “Anthropocene Campuses”—, and in a wider range of small-scale workshops, public programs, field trips, and exhibitions, a broad array of formats have been developed and experimented with over the years in different cities and regions across the world.

Each of these local iterations of the Anthropocene Curriculum idea have been independently organized and tailored to meet the local demands and concerns of each specific cultural, geographical, and institutional context. The individual projects and people are linked through this open web platform, a common space that facilitates exchange, shares experiences, practices, and results, and offers a participatory knowledge base for a global community of Anthropocene research and education.

The Anthropocene Curriculum was initiated in 2013 by Haus der Kulturen der Welt(HKW) and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG) as part of The Anthropocene Project and has now expanded into a collaborative network spanning the globe.
