You are warmly invited to join artist Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg in conversation with Jane Calvert, Professor of Science and Technology Studies at the University of Edinburgh
Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg and Jane Calvert have collaborated together before – critically ‘investigating synthetic biology’s designs on nature’. Using Growth Assembly (a work that will be shown at Talbot Rice Gallery, by Ginsberg & Sascha Pohflepp) and a small selection of Ginsberg’s previous projects as a springboard, this conversation will question the attitudes we project on to the future and the implications they have for different ecological systems.
Rewilding the Future promotes a decentring of human perspectives – in order to avoid continuing the cycle of colonising, industrialising and marketising nature – and the important role art can play in generating different forms of knowledge: in the context of The Normal, something of a toolkit for thinking into post-COVID-19 realities.
This event will be live captioned and recorded.
