· some Things




There is beautiful but challenging work to be done: collecting the things of our times: objects, quasi-objects, hyperobjects, and use these collections as instruments for study. Try out different exhibits untill “things fall  in place”, untill hyperobjects become fully visible, create wonder and doubt and show that things are a bit more complicated than what consumerism makes us believe. Use all this to recompose knowledge. Use curatorship to cure. If the separation between Naturalia and Artificiallia no longer holds, what can be the new categories? Could, for instance, things be divided into Light ones and Multiple ones, or Quick ones and Consistent ones? Could these qualities be useful to see and live the world in a different way and to better tackle the collective issues of the Anthropocene?


                                                                                                                           The inaugural speech of the Museum of AnthropoceneTechnology (MAT) has been given at TEDx Lake Como, on 11 November 2017.

The speech is in Italian, but has english subtitles.
