THIS IS A PROJECT ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A PERSON AND A PLACE
looking at humans and their environments in the here and now reveals many unexpected parallels to contemplate. and this is what the anthropogeos project is all about.
The Anthropogeos team, along with international experts, have travelled to Antarctica, the Gobi Desert, Guatemala, Svalbard and many other parts of the world. The photos, video journals, travel notes, and interviews that we have brought back from the expeditions form the basis for our online travel experiences and offline events.

What’s happening with the colonization of the coldest continent on our planet? We invite you to join us on a virtual expedition which follows the route taken by the Anthropogeos team. On the way from Union Glacier to Novolazarevskaya station, we will meet people who, for various reasons, ended up in Antarctica; learn how tourism works here, and see for ourselves how the continent is being developed.
