Néolithique Anthropocène, Dialogue autour des 12000 dernières années
Néolithique Anthropocène. Dialogue autour des 12000 dernières années presents a series of reflections on the human footprint on the planet: the transformative footprints of the Neolithic period, revealing humanity’s interrelationship with the rest of the living world; the predatory footprints on resources and bodies of the plantation culture from the beginning of the sixteenth century; and the toxic footprints that became visible after the Second World War, which are part of the “great acceleration”. To question the origin of this crisis of the Earth’s habitability and to glimpse its complexity is also to open up the possibilities for the future. Looking back over the last twelve thousand years allows us to understand both the richness and the extent of the transformations carried out by our species in such a short time: if we imagine the existence of the Earth from its origins to the present day as a 24-hour day, Homo Sapiens arrives at 23:14!
To hear or glimpse this complexity and respond to various sensitivities, this book brings together several forms of expression: the interviews of Thibaut Sardier with Jean-Paul Demoule and Michel Lussault, of Bérénice Gagne with Christine Chivallon; the texts of Muriel Gandelin, Michel Lussault; the maps of Axelle Grégoire; the photographs of François Deladerrière; the exhibition La Terre en héritage, du Néolithique à nousof the Confluences Museum explained by Christian Sermet. All of them participate in a storytelling of our history in movement and in rebounds.
