Anthropocene, Capitalocene, Chthulucene,  staying with the trouble at Fukushima
2016 es el año en el que convergen dos acontecimientos de escala global. Por una parte, la posible confirmación por la Comisión Internacional de Estatigrafía de que estamos en una nueva época geológica, el Antropoceno, marcado por la radical afección de la tierra por la actividad humana. Por otra, el quinto aniversario de la explosión de multiples reactores nucleares en Fukushima a 200 km del area urbana más populosa del planeta. Las definiciones de ambos acontecimientos están en disputa. La tesis del Antropoceno es problematizada por otras formulaciones críticas como las del Capitaloceno (Moore), con énfasis en las relaciones de capital y trabajo, o el Chthuluceno (Haraway), como una propuesta para escapar del excepcionalismo humano. Como ya sucediera anteriormente en Chernobyl, la catástrofe nuclear de Fukushima es un tipo de problema presentado por las autoridades como “bajo control” frente a un enorme dispenso por amplios sectores de población y especialistas que denuncian la existencia de unas políticas de invisibilidad (Kuchinskaya, Downer, Petryna, Yablokov, Ross, Alexievich). ¿Cómo se relacionan ambos acontecimientos? ¿Qué aporta Fukushima a las actuales discusiones sobre el Antropoceno? Situándonos en el tiempo de las catástrofes (Stengers) respondemos a la sugerencia de Haraway de permanecer con el problema y a su incitación a la investigación a partir de la ciencia ficción. Apoyándonos del trabajo de una larga serie de escritores, científicos, y artistas, llevamos a cabo una especulación fabulativa sobre el significado de Fukushima como una lucha situada a partir de las figuras de Antropos, del Capital y de Chthulu y sus respectivas máquinas de contar historias.
