We are once more leaving human-centeredness behind and try to stay in trouble with Plant-Thinking or Phytocentrism. Following Michael Marder’s concepts directly and through the eyes of Jennifer Hamilton we are “greening our human consciousness”. We aim to understand multispecies entanglements beyond anthropomorphic concepts that translate living beings as “somehow human” and ask what becomes into being anyway? Finally, the ongoing question of Multi Multi is, how this feedbacks to critical, speculative, or everyday design practices...

The reading group is loosely connected to the following lecture by Johanna Schmeer: “Xenodesign — towards transversal engagement in design” (15.12.2020, 8 PM CET)

 

The texts are available in the reading list. Please follow your reading interests considering that the texts try to offer various approaches to the topic. Feel free to send questions and thoughts about the readings in advance, and don’t hesitate to join the discussion if you only read partially.

Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
