More-Than-Human Book Club event – Gathering Moss by Robin Wall Kimmerer

The Barbican, London, UK 15.04.23 | 14:30 – 15:30 BST and online 17.04.23 | 19:00 – 20:00 BST For April we will co-journey together in reading Gathering Moss. Together we will learn how mosses might be “a model for how we might live” (Kimmerer) and each go on a guided individual moss pilgrimage to connect with the sensualities of one of the world’s oldest plants. Drawing on her life as a scientist, a mother, and a Native American, Kimmerer explains the stories of mosses in scientific terms as well as within the framework of indigenous ways of knowing. In her book, the natural history and cultural relationships of mosses become a powerful metaphor for ways of living in the world.

A Field of Possible Finds: interconnected sites in (re)performing – online event

AHA Research Network, University College London with Slade School of Fine Art, UK 06.04.22 | 16:00-17:30 GMT The Archaeology-Heritage-Art Research Network examines the varied ways in which archaeology, heritage and art converge across a broad range of concepts and practices, from artistic interventions in the museum space to archaeological interpretations which deploy and take inspiration from contemporary art. The AHA Research Network public programme is co-ordinated by Ellen Pavey, Nastassja Simensky and Beverley Butler. In the second event of the AHA 2022 programme series, artist Luce Choules presents A Field of Possible Finds: interconnected sites in (re)performing. “Set in the material field of Athens, Greece, a performed work weaves across different registers of time to build a collection of scenes made from fragments. Drawing on fieldwork, memory, embodied experience and an architectural essay, the extracts become sites of entangled narratives and interpretation, simultaneous collapse and construction. Here, objects connected to passed events (re)perform an ever-unfolding present in mass tourism and the trap of history”. Online booking – Luce Choules: A Field of Possible Finds – …

I’m New Here – online radio show

I’m New Here, dublab, Barcelona, Spain 14.03.22 The comings and goings of migrations often reside at artificial borders designed to divide us. But migrations take place through the air, underwater, and of course through sound and music. This series is dedicated to migrations of all kinds: magnificent or terrifying journeys; the resulting landings and transformations. We all change to be new here. Associate Mark Aitken’s final radio show of the series can be heard on the I’m new Here dublab radio show. “La Ultima! The last show is a two hour compilation from the past 20 editions since September 2019.”

Despite Extractivism – ‘Embodiment’ event

Extracting Us collective, University of Brighton, UK 27.01.22 | 12:00-13:30 GMT Following the online exhibition launch event, three webinars will explore the stories, ideas and practises of the Despite Extractivism contributors and the communities they engage with. The events, featuring performances, presentations and discussions, focus in turn on expanding but intersecting scales, from the body to the global. Embodied, sensory or emotional experiences can evoke (new) sensibilities to extractive realities at a personal level. In this webinar we will explore how particular kinds of creative practises and strategies not only portray such experiences but also motivate embodied persistence or resistance , because of – or despite – extractivism. The ‘Embodiment’ event includes a performance by artist Luce Choules (showing in the exhibition as Choules+Roisner). Despite Extractivism – online exhibition. Register on Eventbrite for ‘Embodiment’ event tickets. Past information on this project can be seen on the ONCA website.
