The ›Radical Proximity‹ series will be published by DISTANZ Verlag to coincide with PACT’s 20th anniversary. Spanning three volumes, the series brings together essential elements of PACT’s transdisciplinary program. As such, it is not a retrospective of 20 years of program work, but rather a compact and forward-looking examination of the scope for thought and action of this unique place. The volumes include interviews, essays, and visual contributions by pioneering protagonists from the fields of science and activism, art and philosophy, all of whom address urgent questions of our time in an inspiring manner.
