Landscapes of the Anthropocene
Humans make Nature

Landscapes of the Anthropocene: Humans make Nature is a series of lectures with a Round Table by the department Landschaftskunst. Landscape and Public Space.
The program of study, led since October 2014 by Paul Petritsch (Six&Petritsch), aims to think anew the theme of landscape in visual art, in particular by making connections to other disciplines. In this process of reorientation, experts are invited on a regular basis to the department's Round Table, with the aim of updating the historical concept of landscape within contemporary discourse. Taking their own fields of work as a starting point, invited participants address a chosen thematic focus, stimulating a discussion which guides and accompanies the semester's work. To begin this reflection, we have taken a thesis which demands a new definition of the relation between humans and nature, as well as a fundamental revision of our concepts.
