People who have saved this event:



Precarious terrains and entangled situations is an exhibition exploring the colonization of nature and showing, on the one hand, the necropolitan machinery of ecocidalism (environmental words). On the other hand, new forms of resistance inspired by and linked to indigenous cultures that regard themselves as part of an ecological continuum. 

The art of the exhibition resonates with societies from Australia, China, Sápmi and Svalbard, which in various ways work to break the paralysis of the visionary, which in turn is linked to a fundamental lack of reflection on socio-ecological phases and the complex relationship with migration and spirituality that revolve around the violence to which the Earth is exposed.

By trying to look critically beyond these toxic states of ecocidalism (environmental words), the artists base their practice on careful interconnection - and thereby transformation - of a variety of body-based knowledge and resources. They approach complexity and mutual dependence on emerging patterns of "environmentalization" by working on different types of perception and related seemingly different areas of expertise and territories. While some explore and translate states of pollution, others are inspired by inheritance from indigenous habitats or the global civil society's autonomous survivor in Black Atlantis.
