Guest edited by Klaus K. Loenhart – ZERO LANDSCAPE – - Unfolding Active Agencies of Landscape:
With increasing speed and intensity are the living spaces and habitats on our planet being occupied and transformed. GAM.07 therefore focuses on landscape and the environment as protagonists of this development, not merely as a passive backdrop: besides urban expansion, factors like climate change, the provision of food and natural resources, and an increasing need for renewable energy will all be seriously influencing the configuration of future societies. Zero Landscape directs attention to a development in which the landscape surrounding us itself becomes the cause and driving force of massive social transformationâ€”the active agentof future evolutions.
