Podcast: The One-Straw Revolution with curator iLiana Fokianaki

Listen to our latest podcast episode to learn more about our current exhibition at Framer Framed, The One-Straw Revolution. Episode 13 of the Framer Framed podcast is an interview with the exhibition’s curator iLiana Fokianaki.

The exhibition focuses on permaculture and environmental care, featuring artists who explore sustainable living, interspecies coexistence, and the impact of human actions on the environment. With the exhibition, ⁠iLiana ⁠Fokianaki brings together artists whose work highlights the urgency of addressing the ecological crisis and the need for a more sustainable and respectful relationship with the environment. She hopes the exhibition will prompt visitors to consider their connections to their environment and ancestral ways of sustainable living.

This exhibition draws inspiration from The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming (1975) by Japanese farmer and philosopher Masanobu Fukuoka, a seminal work in ecological thinking and practice.

iLiana Fokianaki, a curator, theorist, and educator based in Bern, Athens and Rotterdam, and the new director of Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland, starting spring 2024. Her research focuses on formations of power and how they manifest under the influence of geopolitics, national identity and cultural and anthropological histories, with a special interest in the ethics and politics of care.
