In the context of Delfina Foundation’s seasonal programme The Politics of Food and Arts Catalyst’s current exhibition Towards the Planetary Commonsjoin us at Arts Catalyst for an evening workshop led by artists Luigi Coppola and Asunción Molinos Gordo.

The workshop aims to investigate the implications of language and terminologies embedded in dominant monocultural approaches whilst seeking to counter-verbalise them. How can one challenge the existing vocabulary underlying the politics of traditional botanical taxonomies and classifications? What new signifiers can agro-political practices articulate in order to question the power exercised through dispossession and exploitation of land, communities and biodiversity?

During the session the artists and the participants will map out the historical political and colonial entanglements of existing names of plants and seeds, while stimulating new imaginary glossaries for radical ecological politics.

Artists, activists, researchers, gardeners and herbalists are invited to attend.
