With great pleasure we announce that the fourth Conversation Pit, Studio17’s reading group, will be hosted by artist Maiken Stene who is running Velferden, an exhibition space for arts and culture in Sokndal, South Rogaland. The programming of Velferden probes into questions of ecology, prompted by the context of the deserted mine that surrounds it. Furthermore, it aligns with Maiken’s interests as an artists and endeavours to connect with the local community.
The text, selected by Maiken, which we will be discussing is “Tentacular Thinking: Anthropocene, Capitalocene, Chthulucene” by Donna Haraway. It can be accessed here:
We also recommend to watch a video about Donna Haraway’s recent lecture at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam:
