Dropping Knowledge


The Global Dialogue Platform

dropping knowledge is a way of asking and answering questions that recognizes multiple viewpoints. When you ask in order to understand, when you answer in order to share, you are dropping knowledge.

Dropping Knowledge's took place on September 9th, 2006; 112 of the world’s great minds--a number of them are artists, musicians, filmmakers and authors--came together around the world’s largest table in Berlin’s historic Babelplatz Square.

Recorded by 112 digital cameras, they simultaneously answered 100 questions chosen out of thousands donated by the global public. The resulting 600+ hours of audiovisual content launched an unprecedented online resource: a knowledge portal and dialog forum created to host a global conversation covering the most pressing questions of our time.
