On the occasion of his carte blanche at the Palais de Tokyo (from 17 October 2018 to 6 January 2019), the artist Tomás Saraceno is the guest editor-in-chief of issue 28 of the magazine PALAIS.
Tomás Saraceno’s exhibition ON AIR is an emerging ecosystem that hosts a choreography of multiple voices belonging to human and non-human universes and in which works reveal common, fragile and ephemeral rhythms and trajectories linking these worlds. ON AIR is comprised of the myriad presences, animate and inanimate, that meet and cohabit within it. As industrial extraction mines the Earth for resources, threatening entire ecologies, ON AIR celebrates new ways of thinking and new modes of knowledge production that point the way to a planet free of borders and fossil fuels. In so doing, the exhibition responds to the debate and global challenges posed by the Anthropocene, a word coined to define an epoch in which human activity leaves an impact so great that it profoundly modifies terrestrial ecosystems.
