In a time of climate change and the redefinition of relationships among living beings, LIKE LIFE, the program conceived and curated by Mali Weil for MUSE – Science Museum of Trento will project the Museum into 2063 for an entire weekend. The journey into the future will explore the horizon of interspecies relationships 40 years from now, bringing together public and professionals from design, art, cuisine, anthropology, history, cultural theory.

The Masterclass

This event focuses on three key points to imagine together during the future: design, food, and future fictions: three topics to intersect networks and research projects, artistic and innovative practices, design platforms, organizations, and future visions of biological, cultural, social, and political relationships in the Anthropocene.

The program will take place on Friday, December 1 (from 4 pm), the entire day on Saturday, December 2, and Sunday, December 3 (work is expected to conclude by 1.30 pm).

The program includes 4 free theoretical/practical meetings with:4 Fiona RabyZoönomic Institute/Klaas Luitenbrouwer, Climavore and School of Interspecies Diplomacies and Werewolfish Studies plus a public Lectio Magistralis with Fiona Raby followed by an intervention of Prometheus Food Lab.
