The Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics and the Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere Academy Program (GEDB), both at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) of Stockholm University, have been instrumental in forming and developing the international frontier of science for sustainability. These organisations are critical assets for the Anthropocene Laboratory and have decades of experience in performing scientific work that combines skills and competencies across disciplines as well as science for change. These are the home institutions for the Anthropocene Laboratory mentors.

The Anthropocene Laboratory strives to work across scientific disciplines and in collaboration between science and art. We are happy to have partnered with Norwegian visual artist Tone Bjordam, Stockholm-based Accelerator and Goldin + Senneby as a first step to engage with the arts and artists.

Tone Bjordam

Transformation in nature, changes in society and in the human mind: geological, climatic, and biological processes are central aspects of Tone Bjordam’s artistic practice. She explores forms, patterns, and processes in nature, in micro and macro perspectives and in combination with scientific research, through video and performance, photography, drawing, painting, soundscapes, and sculpture installations.
