Geometries | Locus / Agricultural University of Athens

A walk through the grounds will be both a visual and discursive feast as in parallel with the exhibition framework a parallel program activating different layers and sites of academic life will sow and reap knowledge throughout the exhibitions’ three-month cycle. Soil, food, seeds, eco-systems will be some of the vital bi-products of research into the primary materials on hand. Academic knowledge, technological methodologies, agricultural practices will be understood through the prism of contemporary art for the artists who have been invited to contemplate and create new landscapes in the University’s environment.
Curated by locus athens (Maria-Thalia Carras and Olga Hatzidaki)
Featuring works by AREA (Architecture Research Athens), Paky Vlassopoulou, Marios Desillas & Georgia Ntousikou / Soil School, Céline Condorelli, Cevdet Erek, Faye Zika, Athina Ioannou, Kassandras, Troō Food Liberation, Giannis Manetas, Natassa Biza, Marjetica Potrč & Valentina Karga, To Peliti, Didem Pekün, Javier Rodriguez/Standart Thinking, Thanasis Totsikas, κ.ά.

Grey, Green, Gold (and Red) | Utopiana Geneva

Uriel Orlow will present a lecture performance Grey, Green, Gold (and Red), followed by the presentation and launch of two recent publications Affinités des sols | Soil Affinities and Theatrum Botanicum.

Grey, Green, Gold (and Red) expands on the themes and concerns of Orlow’s project Theatrum Botanicum (2015-2018), considering plants and gardens as active agents in politics and history. Following human-plant entanglements, Grey, Green, Gold (and Red) explores the role played by the garden Nelson Mandela and his fellow inmates planted on Robben Island prison during their 18-year incarceration, the implications of an ongoing battle between a flower and a squirrel, as well as the fate of alien species in Europe and South Africa.

Postkoloniale Verstrickungen | Völkerkunde Museum Zürich

Der Begriff Postkolonialismus beschreibt die Auswirkungen von Kolonialismus, Dekolonisierung und neokolonialen Tendenzen auf die heutige globale Situation als verflochtene, reziproke Geschichte des Westens und des Globalen Südens. Das aktuelle Thema beschäftigt Wissenschaftler/innen, Künstler/innen und ethnologische Museen auch in der Schweiz. «Postkoloniale Verstrickungen der globalen Schweiz» lautet der Titel der neusten Ausgabe der Zeitschrift Widerspruch/72, in der konkrete Fallbeispiele beleuchtet werden. Wie lassen sich postkoloniale Erkenntnisse wirksam machen? Kurzvorträge werfen Schlaglichter auf die Publikation und auf konkrete Themen.
