MANMADE (English) The history of the Anthropocene epoch still needs to be written, but can we already make an attempt to describe our current epoch? “Anthropocene” originates from the Greek words “Anthropos” (man) and “Ceno” (new); in other words, it’s the new epoch of mankind. Is it possible to use the helicopter view of history in your own time and to give a description of the Anthropocene: who, what, where, when, how, and most importantly: why? Why is everything the way it is, happens and evolves today? What else is in store for us and how do we think about this; what will people think of us in the future?
