(re)programming Strategies for Self-Renewal

As a growing population is sharing an ever-shrinking planet, we have found ourselves at an existential crossroads: do we bring the mistakes of the enlightenment and industrialization to their logical conclusion or should we develop a capacity to reprogram ourselves as a species in order to survive? Some of the solutions might be technical, but most of the obstacles are not. Through surveillance, manipulation and escapism, multinationals and foreign governments are using the powerful tools that could help us manage the climate emergency to manage us instead. The apocalyptic narratives of destruction, natural selection and space colonization distract us from the urgent need to manage our resources and mitigate a disaster.

What will it take for humanity to change its course and build a responsible future for the generations to come?

With contributions from world-class thinkers as well as specialists from the local and online communities, this reader seeks answers to these questions by focusing on solutions, finding tools, words and visions across disciplines, from energy and infrastructure to community building and AI.

The reader is published by Aksioma in the framework of konS ≡ Platform for Contemporary Investigative Art as part of a season of close encounters with world-class thinkers curated and conducted by Marta Peirano and is distributed for free by NERO.
