Finn Arne Jørgensen and Dolly Jørgensen, Technology and Culture 57(1):231-237.

This exhibit review discusses the Welcome to the Anthropocene: The Earth in Our Hands exhibit at the Deutsches Museum, Munich, within the context of how history of technology should engage with the Anthropocene concept. We argue that technology is the linchpin in the Anthropocene as an idea, and thus historians and museums of technology need to critically examine how humans are reshaping planet Earth.
