Spatial Figures brin the Anthropocene

Spatial Figures
in the Anthropocene

Symposium, 5-6 October 2023

Engagement with the planetary and its crises has led to the emergence of radical challenges to conventional analytical distinctions between global and local. This symposium explores how the concept and reality of the Anthropocene disfigures and refigures four key spatial figures of Western modernity: the place, the territory, the network, and the route.

Organized by the Collaborative Research Center 'Re-Figuration of Spaces' (SFB 1265) in collaboration with the ICI Berlin

Making and brBreaking Models

Making and
Breaking Models

Workshop, 16-17 Oct 2023

This workshop will focus on how the meaning of models changes as it travels between different domains, and on how a given model is constructed and broken depending on how tightly it is bound to its reference. Opposing the idea that models are mere representations, contributions will inquire into their generative properties: to make a model involves abstractions and idealizations that can have very real effects in its target system. Likewise, to break a model often leads to novel theoretical insights, revealing hidden presuppositions and opening up the possibility of making, and breaking, again.

Organized by current ICI Fellow cohort
