Mutating Ecologies in Contemporary Art

Symposium at MACBA Barcelona
1 December 2016

mutatingecologiesToday, ecology is a prism through which artists are working with issues related to radical gardening and permaculture, sustainable bio-fuels, micro-economies, speculative design, open-source technologies, food access, biohacking, post-gender subjectivities and sustainable social practices. Papers are sought that seek to deep this notion of expanded ecologies by examining current transdisciplinary artistic, cultural and curatorial practices that provide different ways to understand, contest and interrogate our relation to the earth.
