LandscA/Ope reading group
AdO/Aptive was invited to host three reading group sessions organised by the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, as accompanying program for the exhibition “The Use of Landscape”.
image(i_nation): How are landscapes and nature compressed into human-made images? What other modes of imagining concepts of seeing and representation do or could exist?
in(ter)vention: Focus on the human interventions in what is broadly described as “nature” and the inventions of ways to deal with the ecological consequences.
in*version: The aim to invert already existing anthropocentric, insufficient and exploitative conceptions of nature and landscapes by reading and learning from non-eurocentric epistemologies that create other versions of knowledge about nature.
