Our planet faces a huge existential threat, caused by human actions capitalising on nature. In science and humanities - until very recently - we perceived nature as a resource rather than a partner. Furthermore, especially in big cities we are extremely dissociated from natural world. Kasia Molga and Erik Overmeire of World Wilder Lab believe that no effort is too big or too small to change this and that storytelling (in various forms) is one of the most powerful ways to reconnect with the living world.

As part of Het Nieuwe Instituut’s research on burn-out and exhausted bodies, this series investigates how voice, oral histories, and collective, embodied listening, could be deployed as a counterbalance of the pervasiveness of the image and the growing pressure to put bodies on display. For this first event, Professor of anthropology Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing read, by means of an audio piece, her work The Mushroom at the End of the World.

Designing for Precarious Citizens is a research-by-design project by Artez Future Makers, the centre of expertise for interdisciplinary design based research. Starting point of this project is the work of Dutch architect Johan Niegeman, who attempted to design a better quality of housing for the masses. Apart from dedicating himself to designing for these ‘precarious’ citizens, Niegeman was convinced that design should always be achieved with the best techniques available.
