Poetics of Resilience: A Live Conversation

A discussion with a panel of artists and curators as we bring Brazil: Footprint 0.0 to a close and consider the possible ways we can understand resilience at a time of climate injustice

In discussion on the evening will be: Naine Terena, Uýra Sodoma, Thyago Nogueira and Glenn Shepard.

Resilience, a word typical of preparedness programmes, international cooperation and disaster recovery propaganda, loosely refers in physics to 'the ability of a substance to return to its usual shape after being bent, stretched, or pressed.' As communities all over the world are ‘bent’ by increasing anthropogenic risks and supposed natural disasters, Indigenous people have become the embodiment of post-apocalyptic survival in light of years and generations of interdependence between people, animals and things. The panel will explore how art addresses questions that go beyond technocratic approaches to climate change: symbiosis, interdependence and the resilience of Indigenous knowledge.

This is an online event. Watch here or on our Youtube channel from 7.30pm on Monday 19th July.
