[ISEA2022] Panel: Julian Stadon, Erik Zepka, Maya Minder, Maro Pebo, Roland van Dierendonck & Marta de Menezes — Islands of the Day Before: Artistic Exploration in Post-Anthropocenic Food Ecologies

Panel Statement 

CCCB Theatre, June 13

Keywords: Food Ecologies, Post-Anthropocene, Fermentation, Non-Human Entanglement, Art+Science

This panel will explore historical and contemporary engagements of Art that address our relationships with food and the systems that relate to these. In a wide sprawling discourse that intersects augmentation and ecological aesthetics with Art+Science practice, this panel will present a discussion around the plethora of artist’s work that creates cross-bindings and transdisciplinary approaches between the different topics of post-agriculture, post-growth and molecular cooking. The discussion aims to create new thoughts on food systems through artistic research that addresses topics of scale and scope in the Post-Anthropocenic era, micro to macro sub-connectivities in ecological systems, post-nature ideologies, microbial and fungal remedies and molecular transitions in human and non-human bodily encounters.
