encountering emerging naturecultures



Dates (Period): 01/09/21 – 31/12/21
Location: Riga, Latvia
Organizer: RIXC in collaboration with Greenness
Studies Initiative – Jens Hauser.

The project with its activities was used as a research case. All the project activities were well documented and collected – articles by conference speakers, professional photos from the exhibitions, interviews and reviews about the events of this project, etc. At the end the materials were selected, edited, and issued in the project publication titled “Green Revisited: Encountering Emerging Naturecultures in Art and Research”.

Emerging “Naturecultures” perspective have become now one of the key directions in contemporary discourses. This volume in the Acoustic Space series (published by RIXC) is based on Greenness studies by Jens Hauser and it continues to build a ‘techno-ecological’ perspective in which new artistic practices are discussed that combine ecological, social, scientific and artistic inquiries. The topics covered in this volume include * green/ungreen – ‘symbolic green, ontological greenness and performative greening’ * post-anthropocentric visions – ‘nature culture’ and eco-critique * biopolitics – beyond the anthropocene, towards multispecies relations and open space research * sensible ‘green’ – beyond the visual: acoustic, olfactive, chemical etc. * ‘green’ intelligence – environment and naturally AI within algorithmic societies * ‘prismatic’ – color theories, light and perception.. 

Edited and published at the closing activity of the GREEN project, the volume contains 16 articles, exhibition overview and worklab reports by participants.
