Symposium 18 May, 10 am – 6 pm
Floating University Berlin, Germany
A one month of outdoor exhibition with accompanying symposium exploring ecology in border areas. The outdoor exhibition, Terrestrial Assemblage brings together artists whose practice deals with the relationship of humans to the earth („terra“). In an „act of coming together“ (assemblage) of different artistic media and ideas on current issues of demarcation and the ever louder environmental issue, ten international artists present their site-specific works on the grounds of the Floating University Berlin. They address the Anthropocene / Capitolocene causes of new borders and, in their artistic observations of the environment, reflect on social, biological and political border shifts, and design new, hybrid, cross-species images of the future.
The exhibition is accompanied by a symposium entitled Terrestrial Assemblage: Ecological Thinking in Border Zones. Along the axes of territoriality and deterritorialization, artists and scientists will speak on current ecological issues on borderlines from multiple perspectives and create new spaces for thinking.
