Project: The Moment of the theoretical Alert

The project aims to design and critically reflect an Earthquake Early Warning Assistant of the near future. It experiments with scenarios of human-machine interaction via a series of multi-media performances that resemble a laboratory test room. The project will demonstrate a case study on the region of Istanbul and Almaty/Bishkek. It provides scenarios of rescue inside buildings: before, during and in the aftermath of an earthquake. The project is an interdisciplinary work between the artist and geoscientist Svenja Schüffler and the cultural scientist Anne Schreiber. The idea is based on Schüffler’s essay “KAIROS Earthquake Early Warning Application“, an outcome of the “Anthropocene Curriculum: The Technosphere Issue” of Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin HKW / Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, 2016.
