Dear reader,
I have the pleasure to invite you to a talk :

“Ecological Entanglements from Northeast China and Beyond” Co-Learning Series
on Wednesday 27 July 2022 - 14:00 (Geneva- CH). 

The series will attempt to establish comparative links between Northeast China and other regions of the world, and to explore the neglected and non-classical perspectives of the Global South. “Ecological Entanglements from Northeast China and Beyond” will take place from late July to late October 2022 and will consist of four online seminars, closed-door workshops, and field trips to the Northeast. Four Swiss artists : Uriel Orlow, Anastasia Mityukova, Pauline Julier, Vanessa Billy will attend the event series.
Between the Dongbei Railroads, the Hengduan Mountains and the Greenland Ice Sheet: Mediatizing the Infrastructures of Planetary Dimension.
The first online seminar, titled “Between the Dongbei Railroads, the Hengduan Mountains and the Greenland Ice Sheet: Mediatizing the Infrastructures of Planetary Dimension,” will feature Mia Yu, artist Chen Xiaoyi, and Geneva-based artist Anastasia Mityukova, with a focus on massive-scale infrastructures embedded in the earth. Respectively addressing themselves to the railroad–coal-mine complex in Northeast China, the scatters of mining caves in the Hengduan Mountains, and the U.S. military base in Greenland, the participants will explore the geopolitics, ecological transformation, image mechanisms, and individual narratives behind these infrastructures. The melting of Arctic sea ice is the corollary of fossil fuel emissions, and the ecological problems caused by the Cold War are manifesting themselves in an unexpected way in the present and the future. As humans overexploit nature, nature, in turn, rewrites the fate of humans. What are the complex entanglements between coal, minerals, earth’s crust, ice, and human beings in the telescoping of deep time and the history of the 20th century? Using the media of painting, photography, and video, how do artists mediate macroscopic studies and microscopic perceptions of planet-scale infrastructures? Moreover, does the work of artists imply the existence of certain non-classical alternative perspectives of the Global South?
