RIBOCA2 announces programming for online series of talks and conversations

Unfolding across the duration of the Biennial, the weekly programme of online talks and conversations, workshops and activities expands on a glossary of words that inspired RIBOCA2: Endings, Nature, Love, Ruins, Healing, Magic, Cosmos, Underground, Care, Dreams, Dance, Imagination, Human, Wildness, Ghosts, Metamorphosis, Voices, Fictions and Futures. Each word prompts the week’s events and is a tool for building alternative imaginaries that acknowledge diverse ways of being, thinking and doing.

The series of talks and conversations brings together outstanding thinkers, researchers, and writers from various fields. They include physicist and queer theorist Karen Barad, anthropologist Marisol de la Cadena, philosophers Federico Campagna and Emanuele Coccia, poet CAConrad, sociologist Boaventura de Sousa Santos, philosopher Vinciane Despret, anthropologist Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing, sociologist and writer Avery F. Gordon, art historian Boris Groys, queer theorist Jack Halberstam, researcher Marina Simakova, artists Anton Vidokle and Arseny Zhilyaev from the Institute of the Cosmos, performance studies scholar André Lepecki, feminist writer and geographer Sophie Lewis, philosopher Michael Marder, environmental humanities and feminist thinker Astrida Neimanis, anthropologist Tobias Rees, artist Nikolay Smirnov with scholar Birgit Menzel, and prison-abolitionist and poet Jackie Wang with mathematician Alexander Moll.
