With Katja Novitskova


The energy crisis has been solved, and the climate crisis is a non-issue. The world looks very different to ours, and yet seems normal to those who live in it. In this post carbon world, energy is understood not as merely electrical power but in all its various stages and phases: mineral, organic and cultural. It can be compared to the new and social media of today; as a form of currency.

New Order explores the implications of energy's new role in our daily lives. How does it influence our interaction with the city, with public and private power structures, with products, art, and other crossing points of energy and social values?
