Driving the Human (2020–2023)
Seven Prototypes for Eco-social Renewal

From 2020 to 2023, the scientific and artistic collaboration Driving the Human developed and produced seven tangible prototypes responding to complex contemporary scenarios. The project was jointly led by four partner institutions—acatech – National Academy of Science and Engineering, Forecast, the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design and ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe—and relied on the expert knowledge and skills of their combined networks. Together, these partners worked to enrich the various developments and outcomes of the initiative.
