Researching across disciplines, ‘Microhabitable’ considers scale, as well as questions of habitability and self-organisation, in a de-anthropocentric, or more than- human, framework.
What methodologies and strategies might those anthropological, political and scientific discourses that deal with the microscopic, the micropolitical and the microeconomic have to share with one another?
Microhabitable’s authors suggest methodologies of encounter and exchange between differential knowledges, be they subaltern, peasant, indigenous, vegetal, matriarchal or post/ nonhuman.
Authors include Yona Friedman, Scott F. Gilbert, Elaine Gan, Fernando García Dory, Lucia Pietroiusti, Elizabeth Povinelli, Filipa Ramos, Jenna Sutela, Anna Tsing and Elvia Wilk.
Further information, from the website of Lucia Pietroiusti:
Microhabitable is a study program resulting from the collaboration between Matadero Madrid, Serpentine Galleries and INLAND – Campo Adentro.
It spans a monthly seminar from September to December 2019, a publication, a radio station and a residency program articulated around reflections focused on the scale factor from the fields of art and the politics of ecology.
