The exhibition was extended to January 5th, 2020.

The Anthropocene Project is a multimedia exploration that documents the indelible human footprint on the Earth from concrete seawalls in China that now cover 60% of the mainland coast, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany, to psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains, to the devastated Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and surreal lithium evaporation ponds in the Atacama desert, from the marble quarries in Carrara to one of the world’s largest landfill sites in Dandora, Kenya.

Anthropocene, the result of the four-year collaboration between the world-renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky and multiple award-winning filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, combines art, film, augmented reality, and scientific research to documents the ways in which humankind has changed the Earth, bearing witness to the effects of the human footprint on natural processes.
