    Performing Landscapes of Care

     with Smirna Kulenović

How do we heal Bioregions that suffered from conflict-related and colonial violence, through participative performative strategies? How can we, artists and architects, encourage dialogues between differently scaled bodies within these landscapes (microbial, human, non-human, land, water, trauma, politics)? In this workshop, Smirna Kulenović shares her transdisciplinary art research grounded in macro- and micro-performative strategies as intersections between geographic terrains and terrains of consciousness.
