Talk between Rain WU & Ralf PFLUGFELDER, Jeroen PEETERS & Laura HERMAN

In Decolonizing Nature and Against the Anthropocene, the art historian T. J. Demos considers the creative proposals of artists and activists for ways of life that bring together ecological sustainability, climate justice, and radical democracy, at a time when such creative proposals are urgently needed.

Jeroen Peeters (Brussels) is a writer, playwright and performer. He has published widely on contemporary dance and performance, art theory and philosophy, including a book on spectatorship, Through the Back: Situating Vision between Moving Bodies (2014). The essay Reseeding the Library, Gleaning Readership (Afternoon editions, 2018) looks into biodiversity and the dispersion of literature. Peeters’ current research focuses on ecologies of attention, embodied knowledge, material literacy and sustainable development.

Laura Herman (1988, Brussels) is a curator and writer. She graduated from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College (CCS Bard, 2016) in New York. Laura currently serves as a curator at La Loge, a Brussels-based space dedicated to contemporary art, architecture, and theory, and she is editor of De Witte Raaf. Laura Herman will be curating the 12th Satellite Programme at the Jeu de Paume in Paris and the Museo Amparo de Puebla in Mexico in 2019-2020.
