Multispecies Storytelling in Intermedial Practices

FORTHCOMING Fall 2021

Multispecies Storytelling in Intermedial Practices is a speculative endeavor asking how we may represent, relay and read worlds differently by seeing other species as protagonists in their own rights.

Resistance exposes a selection of overtly non-conformist positions in the contemporary visual art scene of Albania vis-à-vis the most recent social, political and economic turmoils in the Western Balkans – a region marked by the dark side of political governances that have remained “democratic” in their outward appearance (especially toward the European Union), while dramatically[…]

Published: 08/05/2021

Working from a speculative, more-than-human ontological position, Inefficient Mapping: A Protocol for Attuning to Phenomena presents a new, experimental cartographic practice and non-representational methodological protocol that attunes to the subaltern genealogies of sites and places, proposing a wayfaring practice for traversing the land founded on an ethics of care. As a methodological protocol, inefficient mapping[…]
