09.18.2021 - Recompose Plural Worlds
Saturday, 18 September 2021
Questions about how to inhabit the world today are becoming particularly pressing.
These concerns lead to a set of considerations on ways of worldmaking, welcoming different concepts of the relationship between humans and their environment.
To admit that there can be several worlds is to accept that our representations of one world can change, and that consequently possible actions within it can be modified accordingly.
As anthropologist Philippe Descola asserts, at the end of his anthropological research "we only see what we have learned to see".
This day will try to explore, through interventions by anthropologists, physicists, artists, and philosophers, multiple ways to construct these plural worlds.
