Planetary Patchwork: A Perpetual Seminar on Artistic Practices, Heritage, and Epistemologies (online, ∞)
Planetary Patchwork: A Perpetual Seminar on Artistic Practices, Heritage and Epistemologies is conceived as an online platform for plurivocal and multiperspectival dialogue between arts and academia. The seminar hosts meetings/discussions/presentations/screenings/readings which seek to highlight patches of planetary entanglements and experiment with meeting digitally.
Using the metaphor of the patchwork to build/stitch networks between seemingly distant case studies and stories from around the globe, without predefined topic to find overlaps, linkages and seams between the patches of knowledge.
Do you want to add a patch to the Planetary Patchwork?
Open call for 20min online presentations in future sessions ∞.
The seminar brings together diverse fields such as art history, contemporary art, and architecture, archaeology, heritage studies, museum studies, ecology, history, linguistics, literature, politics, philosophy & more.
