Between Us and Nature – A Reading Club #32 / Begegnung mit Landschaft

“This ‘anthropo-’ blocks attention to patchy landscapes, multiple temporalities, and shifting assemblages of humans and nonhumans: the very stuff of collaborative survival.”1

Anna Tsing

In ‘Between Us and Nature – A Reading Club’ we read together texts  related to natural sciences, art, anthropology, postcolonialism, and (post)anthropocene, chosen from a female perspective looking beyond disciplines. This reading session takes place during the MACHT NATUR exhibition. 2
