“Singing up Abundance” - The ethics of beauty and the stewardship of life. Embodied and indigenous perspectives
With Nicola Perullo (UNISG, Pollenzo, Italy), Joulia Strauss (Berlin/Athens), Luïza Luz (UdK Berlin) and Adam Montoya (IDSVA, NY, per videolink). Moderation: Andreas Weber.
When the world is not longer made of things but of living agents, what art can be radically changes. Between metamorphic bodies, esthetic surfaces give way to mutual transformations of observers and agents, following an ethics of relating which is conducive to life and brimming with the shimmer of ancestral power. On this panel, following a brief kick-off talk by Nicola Perullo, we will explore to what degree radical embodiment and indigenous cosmologies can guide a new becoming of the arts as nourishing life.
