Nordic Natures and the Politics of Science-Art-Activism
How to subvert, challenge and redefine the ways we relate to nature
»The North« and »Nordic« are concepts which are equally pervasive and flawed. Whenever large concepts are meant to encompass a vast variety of landscapes and people, human and more-than-human beings are at risk to be subsumed under national or geo-political problems. We want to subvert this logic and ask how specific practices, individual and traditional concepts of human-nature-relationships and politics play out.
»Luondu Luonddus – As Part of Nature, We Are Nature«, the current exhibiton at Felleshus, challenges dominant ideas of human–nature relations. From place-based poetry, to collaborative visual arts, from collaborations between scientists and artists as well as novels and interventions disrupting the very institutions creating our ideas of humans and »nature«, there are many ways to subvert, challenge and redefine the ways we relate to nature.
In our panel, we will discuss how our guests, Sámi scholar and duojár Liisa-Rávná Finbog, visual artists Simon Häggblom and Karin Lind (SIMKA), poet Sabine Scho, writer Charlotte Weitze, and curator Christina Landbrecht encounter the relations between natures, arts, and politics.
A collaboration between the Nordic Embassies and the project »Disrupt!Research« (TU Dresden).
