RR Material Identity searches to understand the multispecies possibilities for survival and life despite the late-capitalist impact on the earth: also called the Anthropocene. With on the table as a main body of work Anna Tsing’s The Mushroom at the End of The World: on the possibility of life in capitalist ruins, sided by Staying with the Trouble by Donna Haraway, several texts on New (and maybe even Meta) Materiality by the Utrechtse School (Iris van der Tuin, Rosi Braidotti. i.e.), and references to relevant artworks by a.o. Irena Haiduk or Otobong Nkanga we attempt to engage in their ideas on and strategies for coexistence with environmental disturbances.
Reading & Research @ 100 Day House
Reading&Research, shortly RR, is about reading and studying a specific topic together. Smaller groups of interested people gather, read, unfold texts, worlds of thoughts, helping and challenging each other, as each brings her/his own background, expertise, vision, ‘readings’. RR is also about slow thinking, zooming in, and developing discourse.
The RR group is open to post-graduates, MA students and professionals from all fields interested in the topic and engaged to work with a small collaborative group; led by those who participate.
When & where?
RR Material Identity takes place at Veem House for Performance in five weekly sessions on Tuesday's:
