Getting Granular: Pathways to Agropoetics is summer reading group that engages in a slow investigation into soil politics and agropoetics in the framework of our project SOIL IS AN INSCRIBED BODY. Throughout the summer we think with soil as a body and literal ground to root conversations in-between multiple sites and agro-ecological initiatives in and near Berlin. The reading group explores agro-ecological practices as forms of care and embodied politics of resilience, resistance and rehabilitation. Learning from how different initiatives are ‘holding their ground’, we read a selection of texts that interrogate what working with cultivation on various scales means in times of violent planetary collapse of ecosystems and life worlds.
SOIL IS AN INSCRIBED BODY. ON SOVEREIGNTY, AGROPOETICS AND STRUGGLES FOR LIBERATIONS is the second chapter of our longterm investigation THE INVENTION OF SCIENCE.
The project is funded by Hauptstadtkulturfonds and the Foundation for Arts Initiatives.
