If things continue as they are, it doesn't look so good for quite a few species that will soon lose their habitat due to the climate collapse, including humans, of course. A group of children from the Schütze school in Zurich has decided to prepare for this. On a newly founded planet, they create a new ecosystem and new creatures under new living conditions. They are inspired by the animal world, endemic species, dinosaurs, and speculative biology. They sketch and perform newly invented species and build models for the prototype of the new planet, at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst.
- June 10: At 5:30 pm, young scientists will report on their studies at the festival center and take you on an excursion to discover this new planet and its species at Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst.
- June 23, 6:30 pm: Public guided tour with artist Benjamin Egger
