Study Circle Partner Program at Import Projects


Study Circle Partner Program at Import Projects

In dialogue with the transmediale Study Circles, Import Projects presents Scaling Connections, encompassing lecture-performance, installation, spoken-word performance, discussion, improvisational sound work, film screening, and participatory intervention. This event series takes its inspiration from explorations into Deep History, which emphasizes trends and processes rather than individuals and events, paying more attention to kinship, genealogy, and developing traditions. It reaches back to the beginning of life itself, to the iron-sulfur world hypothesis or the primordial sandwich, fostering surprising connections. Deep History advocates to resurrect the basis of humanity by scaling up from the molecular to the molar without the anthropomorphic bias and in the process decentres humankind’s position. The central question of the event series is how the future development of our brains—as a constitutive element of freedom of choice—could look against the backdrop of a deeper understanding of our history and contemporary humanity’s ever-closer wiring with technologies. Curated by Anja Henckel
