Between Us and Nature – A Reading Club #43

Design: Viktor Schmidt

Cities are like the mitochondria in our animal cells – they are consumers, fed by autotrophs, the photosynthesis of a distant green landscape.

Robin Wall Kimmerer

Meeting at sunset of the spring solstice, the reading is an invitation to gather practices of gleaning and to speculate about the possibilities of interliving in more-than-urban environments.

This session is part of the “Promising Premises” exhibition at Bärenzwinger. Curated by Lusin Reinsch and Cleo Wächter, “Promising Premises” is the start of the GLEANING cycle.
