What tools and modes of thinking challenge anthropocentric perspectives of the city? This lecture series explores new approaches to understanding, visualizing and designing for urban biodiversity. Architects, artists, and technologists will discuss innovative methods for integrating wildlife and human habitats.  

Felix Stalder is a professor for Digital Culture at the Zurich University of the Arts. His work focuses on the intersection of cultural, political and technological dynamics, in particular on new modes of commons-based production, control society, copyright and transformation of subjectivity.  Among his publications are “Digital Solidarity” (PML & Mute, 2014) and “The Digital Condition” (Polity Press, 2018). He coauthored "Infrastructure of a Migratory Bird" in 2022, an interactive map showing the relationships between social, technological, informational, and ecological elements that make up the anthropogenic ecosystem in which the Northern Bald Ibis is becoming wild again.
