This installation and series of artist/scholar talks and workshops invite participants to consider what infrastructures and architectures of knowing and being operationalize the denial of relational entanglement, foreclosing possibilities for orienting our existence otherwise. The events will address inter-related questions, including: 1) How has our modern/colonial socialization restricted our capacities and horizons of possibility? 2) How can we be moved to experience: ethics with/out the modern subject? politics with/out the nation-state? education with/out the Enlightenment? welfare with/out modern economies and forms of organization? existence without separability? the end of the world as we know it without despair?
