This collaborative, multi-voiced lecture by Hélène Frichot, Therese Keogh, Virginia Mannering and Karin Reisinger addresses the Anthropocene thesis by following the mass movements of dirt, soil and minerals, from construction sites to mining areas, to acts of terra-forming and re-orderings of communities and ecosystems. In order to understand
geopolitical and ecological entanglements, we zoom in creatively and engage critically.
”What do we learn from following the materials that have been disturbed and redistributed as a result of the furious industrial activities of Anthropos at a planetary scale?”
