General Admission See on official website
We invite you to join our workshop Monsters and Ghosts of the Far North: Collective cartographies by Andra Pop-Jurj and Lena Geerts Danau.
The Arctic is a site of intense geopolitical and infrastructural intrigue, with incompatible and interlocking border claims rooted in colonial and cartographic history. Monsters and Ghosts of the Far North questions current notions of sovereignty and challenges the permanence of national borders and the primacy of the nation state, thereby reconceptualising the contested geopolitics of land ownership in the region.
The workshop “Monsters and Ghosts of the Far North: Collective cartographies” invites the participants to see, notice and think different ways of mapping. The workshop revolves around mapping the environment of a found object, story or sound across time and the goal is to come up with an alternative cartography of the chosen elements to create a multi-media collage of a multisensorial landscape.
Driving the Human is a catalyst for experimentation, shaping sustainable and collective futures that combine science, technology, and the arts in a transdisciplinary and collaborative approach. From 2020 to 2023, Driving the Human develops and produces seven tangible prototypes responding to complex contemporary scenarios.
