Becoming porous

“Becoming porous. Relating to non-human scales” is my current artistic PhD project at the Bauhaus Universität Weimar. It draws upon the assumption that the human inability to relate and respond adequately to the climate crisis is due to a problem of scale (Morton 2018), more precisely, an inability to relate to other-than-human scales. Whilst inhabiting our own materiality, it seems difficult to arrive at a state of empathy towards other material conditions. The residency at the Mladinsko Theatre in Ljubljana in cooperation with the Goethe Institute Ljubljana, Maska and the MGLC (2021) was the first station of my exploration of practice-oriented, small-scale performative formats, inspired by the Fluxus art movement in the 60es. How to become touchable, receptive, and “porous” toward non-human scales: the urgency of ice that disappears, of moss that slowly dies, of rock that erodes?
