This month I have an honour and pleasure to speak at the International Conference “So Close: Ecologies of Life and Death”, organised by Igor Zabel Association for Culture and Theory. The event takes place on 17th November in Ljubljana (and is livestreamed on YouTube – see details below). Here comes some brief info:
International Conference “So Close: Ecologies of Life and Death”
The theme of the conference is the future of life on our planet from the perspective of life’s end, drawing attention to reconsiderations of loss, decline, mourning, and death. In this way, it seeks to transcend the binary of, on the one hand, dystopian pessimism about the future and, on the other, utopian optimism in the all-powerful human capacity to overcome the end.
Speakers: Maja and Reuben Fowkes, Thom van Dooren, Šejla Kamerić, Marietta Radomska, Boštjan Videmšek, and Mick Wilson
