The films, curatorial projects, discussion platforms and publications of The Otolith Group explore the accumulated science fictions of the present in order to reflect upon the powers and capacities of historical futures. Founded in London in 2002, The Otolith Group consists of artist Anjalika Sagar and artist and writer Kodwo Eshun who teaches at Goldsmiths College in London and is the author of "More Brilliant than the Sun: Adventures in Sonic Fiction". The artists take their name from the otoliths – the calcium carbonate micro-crystals found within the inner ear that are responsible for balance. Their work was shown in solo exhibitions such as "A Long Time Between the Suns: Part I and Part II" (Gasworks and The Showroom, London, 2009) and "Thoughtform" (Macba Barcelona, 2011). Group exhibitions include Manifesta 8: The European Biennal of Contemporary Art, Murcia, (2010), Universes in Universe: 29th Sao Paolo Biennal (2010), the 7th Shanghai Biennale (2008), 2nd International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Seville (2006) and New British Art: Tate Triennial (2006). In 2010, The Otolith Group was nominated for the Turner Prize.

For "Globe" The Otolith Group has composed a program consisting of films, talks, audio-essays and a concert. Invited artists include Lise Autogena, theorist and filmmaker Brian W. Rogers, writer and theorist Rayya Badran, artist Justin Barton, critic, theorist, blogger and author Mark Fisher, Reza Negarestani, and legendary electronic music group Dopplereffekt.

Die Veranstaltungen finden in englischer Sprache statt.
