The loss of local ownership also impacted the names of newly established stadia - for example, Arsenal moved to the newly built Emirates Stadium in 2006, sponsored by the airline of the same name. Manchester City resides at the Etihad Stadium, again sponsored by the airline of the same name, which in 2011 caused the older stadium owned by the city of Manchester to be renamed. Ties with the capital of Arab oil monarchies gradually became a common part of club football in England.

The Design of the Anthropocene

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, architecture and design saw the culmination of an approach that claimed that artificially designed systems could mimic natural systems and together create symbiotic assemblages enabling human civilisation to function on Earth. But the paradigm of control has since been shaken to its foundations, and if we are still trying to revive it, it is because we haven’t yet managed to name a new one. The Design of the Anthropocene could be the practical fulfilment of these unnamed paradigms.

Pro(s)thetic Dialogues

Pro(s)thetic dialogues is more like a recording of a theatre performance playing out on a computer desktop. Here the human operator creates the conditions for exploring the performativity of a philosophical zombie pieced together from neural networks.

The necessary dialogue and negotiations that emerged between the overnighters and the protesters led to a simple revelation: the homeless and students can work on their goals together.

Using biohacking and public amateurism as a critical practice of care, Maggic investigates the micro-performativity of hormones and works collaboratively to demystify their molecular colonization. Purity is not an option!

The relationship of man towards land has always been a significant mover of the organization of social, cultural and spiritual life. Land is inseparably linked with our basic needs, it is the source of our nourishment, offers us a safe home and a space for the merger with the cycle of nature. Despite all this we have managed to bring this relationship to the verge of a crisis full of misunderstandings, visible in all spheres of our coexistence.
