Join us on 29 March for a performative evening with members from the transnational artist collective On-Trade-Off in collaboration with A Series of More-Than-Human Encounters. Within the context of our exhibition Charging Myths, the artists aim to highlight different ways of being and alternative forms of knowledge.
Tune in to the livestream here!
In 2021 and 2022, Kaaitheater and VUB Crosstalks hosted a series of lectures entitled A Series of More-Than-Human Encounters. In 2023, the cooperation has expanded with more European partners, namely Framer Framed (Amsterdam), Rosendal Teater (Trondheim) and Artea – Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha (Madrid). This new series will consist of four programmes, within which contemporary thinkers and artists will focus on the relationships between human beings and more-than-human beings.
The More-Than-Human Encounters event at Framer Framed revolves around the exhibition Charging Myths, which takes the recent run on lithium in Congo as a starting point to delve into technological, social, and mythical dimensions across global extractive chains. During the event, artists and members of the collective On-Trade-Off Femke Herregraven, Maarten Vanden Eynde and Georges Senga will partake in a dialogue on the evolving narratives and counter-narratives surrounding extractive practices in Manono. Keeping an eye on the human and more-than-human connections that are drawn from the mined landscape of Manono, the artists engage with a question central to their collective practice: how is technological innovation dependent on natural resources?
This event will be live-streamed through the Framer Framed YouTube channel. It is free and in English.
Register here for both on-site and online tickets.
