Invited speaker at Bioart and Postnatural Ecologies: Posthumanities for Anthropocene symposium

Contemporary times of the ecological crises, exposed vulnerabilities of the human and nonhuman kind, and the more than ever blurred boundaries between the natural and artificial require not only critical reflection, but also conceptual and practical creativity.
This symposium aims to generate and nurture transversal dialogues between artists, practitioners and academics, focused on the ways in which bioart and other areas of contemporary art may open up different/new modes of thinking postnatural ecologies. In this way we hope to create synergies between art, theory and science that may mobilise different ways of attending to human/nonhuman entanglements and contribute to the imagining of more equitable futures.
Furthermore, the event is also combined with the official launch of The Eco- and Bioart Research Network, which will serve as a platform for researchers, artists and other practitioners working with broadly understood eco- and bioart, and thus, will foster the creative and critical spirit of the posthumanities.
