Writing Letters to brExtraterrestrials

Writing Letters to
Extraterrestrials


Symposium, 22-24 Sep 2021

To be extra-terrestrial, or extra-earth, might imply excess or spillover from the earthly, being expelled from Terra, or the desire to leave the Earth altogether. It might invoke fears or excitement of greeting an alien other to Earth, or perhaps instead reveal fantasies of being able to leave a damaged Earth behind and become oneself extra-terrestrial.

Making Contact with
Deeper Times

with Adriana Knouf

Workshop, 25 Sep 2021, 11:30-14:30

The current moment is one perhaps especially transitional, a time that is causing re-modulations of life so as to become attuned to temporalities that exist beyond the human. There exist many nonhuman entities in the world whose existences make manifest these deeper times.

Part of the symposium Writing Letters to Extraterrestrials.

Critical Inflections on (Neo)Extractivism in Latin America

Symposium, 27-28 Sep 2021

Extraction has been historically associated with the removal of underground materials, whereas extractivism is a broader notion connoting a primarily white, colonial mode of accumulation of the West. For most Latin American countries, their natural wealth became their curse, permeating both the material and the symbolic realms. 

Organized by Delfina Cabrera, Ariadne Collins, and Marlon Miguel in collaboration with materia – DLCL Focal Group (Stanford University)

The number of participants at the ICI Berlin is limited. Please register on the  event page. Public Livestream available.

The Refusal brof Time

The Refusal
of Time

with Natalia Brizuela

Workshop, 4 Oct 2021, 16:00-18:30

In this workshop Brizuela seeks to complicate the notion of ’aftermath‘, which is usually inscribed within a Western, linear conception of time and points, like an arrow, to a future that is to come—a future that we must invest in and create.

Organized by M. Ty

Registration opens on 20 September 2021.

Screening and Discussion, 14 Oct 2021, 19:30

Cinematic narratives of eating disorders run the risk of presenting their characters largely passive – a risk compounded by the fear of ‘contagion’ that haunt the images of bodies affected by these disorders.
