|For this year’s CLICK Seminar, media philosopher Jens Hauser has invited artists and theoreticians to discuss these Quirky
Ecologies that we are, and that we are only slowly becoming aware of.
Rather than taking humankind’s allegedly exceptional ‘nature’ and its cultural-technical superiority for granted, this seminar
will challenge the popular conceptions of both nature and ecology, and question the notion of the environment as defined as
a beneficial milieu primarily for humans.
The seminar will deconstruct ‘green’ as the color of nature, and rebuke its cultural construction to represent binary ideas
of the other-than-human world as idealized, purified nature. We will debate post-anthropocentric positions that increasingly
inspire recent artistic practices engaging with interspecies relationships.
In these times where ‘we’ are endangering both our internal and our external ecologies, CLICK SEMINAR will explore the relationship
between environments and ‘invironments’, questioning the interplay between ‘outside’ and ‘inside’ which are becoming meaningless
in today’s worldwide inside-out laboratories. CLICK Seminar includes: a keynote by the anthropologist Judith van der Elst
on ‘Machine Wilderness’; a dialogue between the artist Špela Petrič and the art historian Jacob Wamberg on human-plant interaction
and bio-semiotics; Klaus Spiess & Lucie Strecker on molecular animals, as well as on trans-feminist DIY gyn-ecologies by Klau
Kinki, Paula Pin, Aniara Rodado & Oscar Martin.
