The Shape of a Practice


Negotiating Context in the Anthropocene
Art, Discourse, Research

The Anthropocene as a global concept confronts planetary change with highly fractured and even contradictory local situations, conditions and experiences. It is therefore vital to share methods, contexts and ways of life to grapple with this transforming Earth. In October 2020, The Shape of a Practice will provide an experimental space of learning how to read and work with the interdependencies of planetary existence.
