Discussion: Working the Earth via Youtube Premiere
Time & Location
About The Event
On Friday 18th December we will be broadcasting an exclusive discussion co-curated by Fabrica and ONCA galleries. Dr Louise Purbrick and Alice Owen from University of Brighton and Leny Olivera Rojas from the Bolivia-based organisation TerraJusta will be talking about the Anthropocene from a feminist viewpoint. Sign up to be invited to this intimate conversation on YouTube Premiere by registering for this free event.
Inspired by our current exhibition Earthworks by Semiconductor this discussion will unpack the conventional perspectives that gave rise to the term the Anthropocene, the ‘extractive’ behaviours that characterise this recent phase of geological history, and the key ideas that underpin these cultures of behaviours. Paying close attention to those directly affected by extractivism, the talk goes on to appraise alternative ways of working the earth, both ancient and contemporary, that seem to offer relationships between the environment and people that can be sustained.
