Awareness of political, social and emancipatory-oriented scientific criticism, acquaintance with key terms in social and political philosophy, and critical re-evaluation of essentialist categories and drawing of boundaries drawn between nature and culture, human and non-human beings, and their significance for and classification in contemporary social and political positions 

“Our task is to make trouble, to stir up potent response to devastating events, as well as to settle troubled waters and rebuild quiet places”, Donna Haraway appeals in her programmatic book Staying with the Trouble. With these words, Haraway practices a radical thinking of transformation, which no longer places man, but the lives of other species at the center of philosophical consideration. Against the backdrop of the planet’s destruction through overproduction, overexploitation and overpopulation on the one hand, and the effects of the climate crisis on the other, Haraway considers “cross-species kinship” the only option for reclaiming part of the earth – provided we remain restless. In this project seminar we will familiarize ourselves with some of Haraway’s progressive theses, not only by reading her book, but also by confronting ourselves with some architectural designs that are oriented towards future forms of coexistence. Finally, a visit to the exhibition “Co-Habitation” at the Kunstraum Innsbruck will include artistic positions from which we can profit if we learn to think of the future beyond the Anthropocene.
