‘Prelude’ explores and addresses the idea of multiple ecologies. It offers ways of looking at ecological structures and systems as assemblages and as processes.
Investigating beyond conventional forms, the catalogue examines social and political ramifications, dimensions of virtuality and realisation of worlds, alongside immersive thinking, post-human ontology and ethical praxis, the formation of new zones of autonomy, new relationality and the spaces of a new commons.
Presenting four newly created projects: ‘Conjunctions’ by P.Staff, ‘Liminal Lands’ by Jakob Kudsk Steensen, ‘Tender Point Ruin’ by Sophia Al Maria, and ‘Flowers for Africa’ by Kapwani Kiwanga.
