In May and June I wrote an article and gave a couple of talks about ‘Goodbye Anthropocene: Hello Symbiocene.

It has been my most read post with over 1001 views! I talked about a new era and new terms of how humanity can picture its living well with the Earth’ other inhabitants. This new framework created by philosopher Glenn Albrecht is detailed in his new book Earth Emotions: New Words for a New World (Cornell Press, 2019).

In my article I talked about the extraordinary forest researcher Suzanne Simard. You may like this recent new animation from one of her doctoral students below, Camille Defrenne.

Many thanks if you shared my article too. Hope you like the video!

PS I’m delighted to announce my article will be re-published in the source book “Plasticity – the global reader” (working title) being published in coming winter 2019 by Centre for Contemporary Art U-jazdowski Castle in Warsaw. The editorial ambition is to present the idea of Catherine Malabou’s notion of ‘plasticity’ in the broad perspective of philosophical thinking and the curatorial practice it has inspired in recent years.

The starting point for this publication, printed exclusively in English in amount of 500 copies, is the international group exhibition “Human-Free Earth” curated by Jaroslaw Lubiak, currently on view in Warsaw, Poland.

I will post details of this new book when it is published. 🙋‍♀️
