Contamination/Resilience

Hi-Intensity

The Impossibility of Living Without Each Other/ How would the world look if we acted in a radically different way?

 

Contamination means danger—and change: which systems and structures are currently in the process of dissolution? How do they change, and under which circumstances do they reappear in the current crisis? We bring in resilience as counter-image and counter-strategy. The pressing question of our time is: what makes communities and ecosystems resilient?

Contamination/Resilience gathers practices, theories, sci-fi-novels and artworks that pursue queer and eco-feminist ideas and stimulate a new way of thinking about the future. It is about sickness and care, as well as mutual support – and about reciprocal change.
