On the 06th June at 10:00 AM, Resonances IV artist Jemma Woolmore will be giving an artist talk and presenting her project 'These Relations Are Forever'; a collaboration with scientists from the EU Joint Research Centre, at re:publica festival 2023, in Berlin. She will be introduced by curator Ingeborg Reichle, who is also on the Curatorial Committee for NaturArchy.
A thread of Endocrine-disrupting chemicals weave a speculative story of ritual and healing, where scientific and policy outcomes are intertwined with artistic processes. These Relations Are Forever is an ongoing project that will bring together the knowledge of four researchers, whose work sits at different stations along a flow of chemicals; from agriculture via law and policy through bodies and into water. The project reframes their scientific practices as relations of care, using ritual as a thread to make connections across bodies, scales, cycles and scientific disciplines. The artist will discuss her process and the challenges of art/science collaborations. Touching on themes of fertility, community and (more-than-human) health, and thinking around storytelling and the power of positive imaginaries.
About re:publica 2023
At re:publica 2023, we therefore want to follow the flow of money. Where does it come from? Where does it flow to? Where does it silt up in questionable stock markets, and where does it help to provide water for people's fields? What are governmental responsibilities in digitization? What is being privatized and why? And what could alternatives oriented towards the common good look like?
We want to dicsuss whether democracies and social welfare systems are luxuries that have fallen out of time, or if is rather the construct of the global market economy that is threatening to collapse under the consequences of the multitude of crises.
