Along with a substantive debate about our future, the question of how a relevant, participatory and transdisciplinary dialogue can take place is of central importance to this series of live presentations. Within an intermedial discourse format known as Korsakow Show, developed by media artist Florian Thalhofer, the audience directs the progress of the conversation with laser pointers and can contribute input. The result is a self-organizing democratic discourse moderated by the audience itself.
At the live events, one leading scientist and one humanities scholar or artist take the stage. In addition to these speakers, interviewees from the accompanying book Werden wir die Erde retten? – Gespräche über die Zukunft von Technologie und Planet (Will We Save The Earth? - Conversations about the Future of Technology and the Planet) (Suhrkamp 2013) as well as members of the public have their say in pre-recorded film clips.
