The goal is to create new open spaces for free cooperation among different fields, forms, and disciplines following the example of the author and filmmaker Alexander Kluge who also takes part in the conception and realisation of the event. The makers of the festival believe that the challenges of the future demand solidary and cooperative collectives of individuals instead of single agents acting as competitors within the capitalist order. For the challenges of the time ahead from the removal of social inequality and discrimination to the control of pandemics and the avoidance of the ecological collapse through climate change and massive biodiversity loss simultaneously pile up in front of us and cannot be mastered by single sectors, institutions, disciplines or particular groups of societies alone. Already the understanding of the present and the complex connectedness of individuals and societies with each other as well as with other species and the geospheres in total asks for a plurality of perspectives of the arts and the sciences and of other sections of society. Old and new ways of cooperation, so the leading hypothesis of the festival, must be explored, improved and developed in order to strengthen the plurality of perspectives and to productively mediate them for all. What can be learned from symbiotic ways of life in the biosphere? How do we cooperate meaningfully with new technologies and trough them with other species or the dynamics in the earth system?
