INTERIOR ECOLOGIES LECTURE: INSTITUTE FOR POSTNATURAL STUDIES

Postnatural Studies: Independent strategies for collective knowledge.

From a research-based production, to a materially-based theoretical discourse, the work of Institute for Postnatural Studies aims to expand contemporary practices both in the artistic and pedagogical panorama. Through horizontal dynamics on our online seminars, the traditional roles in education are reverted, giving shape and space for collective thinking and doing. In parallel, our research-based artistic production helps us materialize these discourses, creating a shared knowledge concerned with the ecological moment we are immersed in.

The Institute for Postnatural Studies is a center for artistic experimentation from which to explore and problematize postnature as a framework for contemporary creation. Founded in 2020, it is conceived as a platform for critical thinking, a network that brings together artists and researchers concerned about the issues of the global ecological crisis through experimental formats of exchange and the production of open knowledge. From a multidisciplinary approach, the Institute develops long-term research focused on issues such as ecology, coexistence, politics, and territories. These lines of investigation take different shapes and formats, including seminars, exhibitions, and residencies as spaces for academic and artistic experimentation.
