To further explore the lines of thought woven throughout the exhibition ON AIR: Carte Blanche à Tomás Saraceno at the Palais de Tokyo in 2018, Tomás Saraceno stepped in as the editor-in-chief of issue 28 of PALAIS. Bringing together an extensive range of original contributions from philosophers, researchers, scientists, writers, curators, historians and theoreticians the publication explores the global challenges posed by the Anthropocene, a word coined to define an epoch in which human activity leaves an impact so great that it profoundly modifies terrestrial ecosystems.
Contributions by Benjamin H. Bratton, Vinciane Despret, Anselm Franke, Stavros Katsanevas, Brandon LaBelle, Bruno Latour, Megan Prelinger, João Ribas, Mark Wigley and Estelle Zhong Mengual; including an interview of Tomás Saraceno by Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel, curator of the exhibition. Additionally featuring the voices of Albert-László Barabási, Robert Barry, Markus J. Buehler, Luca Cerizza, Tim Choy, Christina Dunbar-Hester, Sasha Engelmann, Milovan Farronato, David Haskell, Jens Hauser, Peggy S. M. Hill, Caroline A. Jones, Leila W. Kinney, Eben Kirksey, Jonathan M. Ledgard, Sofia Lemos, Michael Marder, Derek McCormack, Roland Mühlethaler, Jussi Parikka, Andreas Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos, Filipa Ramos, Nicholas Shapiro, Étienne Turpin and Philip Ursprung; as well as an extensive selection of images of Tomás Saraceno’s work.
