#1 feral feminisms
Donnerstag, 10. November 2022, 19.30 Uhr, diffrakt | zentrum für theoretische peripherie
Rivers Solomon | Alison Sperling
– Die Veranstaltung findet auf Englisch statt. –
In this first event in our new series on speculative feminisms, the sf writer Rivers Solomon will be in conversation with the literary scholar Alison Sperling. Together, Alison and Rivers will explore a wide range of topics across the bodies of Rivers’s work, bringing short theoretical passages and concepts to Rivers’s writing and thought as well as, in equal measure, Rivers’s writing to theory. Their discussion will begin from ecological questions and explorations in Rivers’s novels and fan outward to think about the role of speculative, queer, racial, and fungal ecologies, decolonizing nature, mutualism and care, domesticity and the feral, and weird hybridities and kinships.
#2 matter, meaning and making
Freitag, 17. März 2023, 19.30 Uhr, diffrakt | zentrum für theoretische peripherie
Morehshin Allahyari | Moshtari Hilal | Sara Morais dos Santos Bruss
Die Veranstaltung findet auf Englisch statt.
In the second session of our series on speculative feminisms, we invite the artists Morehshin Allahyari and Moshtari Hilal to discuss feminisms through the lens of their artistic practices. While Moshtari works with analog drawing, Morehshin’s art engages with new media such as virtual reality and 3D printing and modelling. Across these differences, they share an interest in intergenerational storytelling, family representations, and the hopes of bringing new perspectives into a sometimes stale discourse. The discussion will focus on matter and materialities, beginning with the very materialities of their artistic work and how these allow them to expand upon questions of identity, solidarity and difference within their respective contexts and beyond them. How does matter circulate to produce meaning? How is solidarity practiced hands-on in times of constant wars, representational politics, and social media hypes?
