Kunsthal Aarhus og Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene (AURA) inviterer til en weekendworkshop med kreative praksisser og eksperimentalgenrer om det at leve i besmittede landskaber, lossepladser og kompostbunker i den antropocæne tidsalder.

Workshoppen er arrangeret i forlængelse af udstillingen DUMP! i Kunsthal Aarhus og organiseret omkring en række indlæg af kunstnere og forskere samt flere kollektive gruppeaktiviteter. Weekenden byder således på performances, smagsevents, præsentationer og rundbordsdiskussioner. 

Undervejs bliver der introduceret til udstillingen, Åsa Sonjasdotter inviterer til kartoffelhøst, Aura præsenterer feltstudier fra Søby Brunkulslejer, Etienne Turpin fortæller om det Antropocæne og meget mere.

For at deltage i gruppeaktiviteterne opfordres alle til at indsamle frø og læse Ursula K. Le Guin novelle The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction. De indsamlede frø – og historier om dem – vil indgå i Cecilia Semiyas performance lørdag, mens Le Guins historie er afsættet til en samtale søndag.

ABOUT
Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene (AURA) is an interdisciplinary research group led by Niels Bohr Professor Anna Tsing and Professor Nils Bubandt of Aarhus University, Department of Culture & Society. AURA research combines the arts, sciences, and humanities to study feral biologies and novel technologies shared by humans and nonhumans inhabiting a damaged planet.
