Deadline for expression of interest: Monday, October 31, 2022
We invite interdisciplinary participants from, but not limited to, the field of arts, architecture, landscape, environmental studies/ecology and anthropology to take part in a 6 Day Workshop which will explore more-than-human entanglements and environmental relationships drawing on the waterways in Kochi, Kerala.
With a thorough interdisciplinary orientation to the case study of Kochi, the workshop will engage a range of questions concerning the human and other-than-human dimensions of environmental change and the effect of such change on the environment and society.
The workshop will ask participants to engage with the creation of an assemblage of knowledge and engagement through a ‘more than human’ approach. To do this we will activate a number of activities in which we explore the waterways using techniques which borrow from vernacular practices, the animal world, and an ecological framing around New Materialism. The workshop will instigate a process of how to engage creatively with life on an endangered planet.
Activities will engage with space-related topics, peers, and invited guests in a common workshop setting complemented by lectures, excursions and gatherings. Good proficiency in English is preferred.
For pre-enrolment, please fill in the online form on the link below by October 31, 2022.
The workshop is free of charge. Participants are expected to organize and pay for their own travel, visas, food, and accommodation.
The workshop is part of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale. Framed by the theme “In our Veins Flow Ink and Fire” we will address the question formulated by the curators of this year’s edition: “What do we find when we listen, read, record, think and make?”
