Lernziele / Kompetenzen
  • Students are able to describe the concept of the pluriverse; name at least ten transformative initiatives; and relate and differentiate these initiatives to contemporary art practices
InhalteLiving the change towards a sustainable future is on everyone’s lips. How do we get there? And what are the implications of these changes for art practice? A group of scholar-activists from around the world—Ashish Kothari, Ariel Salleh, Arturo Escobar, Federico Demaria, and Albert Acosta—recently published the book “Pluriverse – A Post-Development Dictionary” (2019). The authors oppose top-down interventions and universal approaches. Instead, they emphasise the need to acknowledge that there are various ways of being in the world and thus to accept pluralism. They built their book project on the hypothesis that there are “thousands of (…) transformative initiatives around the world” living the change. Accordingly, Pluriverse, manifold societal imaginaries and practices, including agroecology, bio-civilization, convivialism, earth spirituality, environmental justice, Jain ecology, and ubuntu. In this seminar, we will familiarise ourselves with some of these alternative concepts. Moreover, we will discuss the implications for art practice based on concrete examples, such as the Perhutana Forest.
