Have we met? Humans and non-humans on common ground


Have we met?
promotes new ways of understanding the Earth as a shared space for plants, microbes, humans, and other animals. The view that earth exists solely for human exploitation must be radically rethought in order to confront the environmental crises the planet is facing today.

The exhibition therefore explores what attitudes, organisational tools and technologies are necessary to recalibrate the relationship between humans and non-humans.

Nature studies traditionally rely on quantitative data with little insight into how humans and non-humans might learn to share space and cooperate. Have we met? repositions how we use such data, presenting a range of possible collaborative tools developed by practitioners across art and design, agriculture, and data- and marine sciences.

An urban block in Rotterdam, a regenerative farm in the country’s rural east, and an abandoned North Sea oil rig. These three ecologically diverse sites in the Netherlands help explore the possibilities of interspecies relationships over time. The exhibition builds on the organisational model of the Zoöp project, collaboratively developed by Het Nieuwe Instituut.
