Imagine a place that's a lot like Earth...
we'll call it planet B
During the monthly planet B meetings, scientists, artists and citizens are invited to have a dialogue about the social and ecological challenges of our time.
The starting point of each meeting is the artistic work in progress of artists whose research is focused on these challenges. Meetup #3 will take place on Friday 13 September, at our outpost at Amsterdam Science Park.
In this meetup we feature the work of artist Antti Tenetz, recipient of the Supre:organism residency. Based in Oulu, Finland, Antti is an artist and naturalist. His works are at the crossroads of media-, bio- and urban arts with strong current of interdisciplinary art-science approach. Currently, he focuses on artificial intelligence and forms of life in outer space. Our second guest is Flavia Dzodan. Flavia is an independent writer, media analyst and cultural critic based in Amsterdam. She is a lecturer at Sandberg Instituut, as part of the Critical Studies team.

About planet B
Waag is developing planet B, a mission to recolonise planet Earth based on a narrative of DIY expeditions to a fictional planet. Planet B offers scientists, artists and citizens a 'greenfields' to develop symbolic and material responses to the social and ecological challenges facing us. It expresses an ethos and possible aesthetics for doing things right in the Anthropocene era.
If we can imagine a planet B that is sustainable and inclusive, what does that mean for our world, and our future here on planet Earth?
This event is made possible within the European ARTificial Intelligence Lab, with support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission, Mondriaan Fund and the public-private partnerships allowance for Top consortia for Knowledge and Innovation (TKIs) from the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
