Imprints, Damages What is a rock and why is it considered an entity separate from its environment? How are energies imprinted on human bodies, its cells and tissues, underneath the ground? What can be learned from microorganisms, bacteria, algae and other critters living in water? How is it possible to relate to surroundings invisible to the naked eye? This conference block presents several artists and artistic collaborations that rethink the world beyond human senses, experienced through imprints, damages or technologies. This panel will be moderated by Margarita Osipian. This conference proposes the ‘magical thinking’ – a belief that thoughts and actions can influence the world – as a provocation. In current dystopian scenarios of future life on Earth, from environment to democracy, imagining a future worth living might reduce anxiety that paralyses action, thereby creating an openness to more inclusive thinking. The questions that need answering are: What is a future worth living (and for whom)? Which tactics can get us there? How can one get from climate emergency and catastrophic populism, fuelled by extractive capitalism, to a world of social/ecological justice and multispecies equality? With focus on artistic research and strategies of visibility and mobilisation through art, this forum wishes to open up critical discussions and propose routes towards a future worth living.
