The consolidation of the world. A meeting with all the participants in the same room has become a meeting where our colleagues are in Madrid, Melbourne, Brampton and Buttenwiesen, but still at the table with us – virtually. Wearing shoes that were made in the Bahamas, we go out for lunch in Berlin and eat Swedish food on the street corner.
Globalisation has turned the world into a village where everything, and everyone, comes together. Life in this global village leads to a homogeneity that has us asking ourselves about our own identity. We look for our roots on our front doorstep as well as in our hearts, and we remember local traditions and rituals. ‘Do it yourself’ is one of the mottoes with which we place our own abilities and needs in the centre of creation – with the original means, which are available to us locally. We think globally – but act locally.
