In May, Kaldor Public Art Projects welcomes COMPOSTERS to The Clothing Store as our very special hosts for the evening, for a performative reading of Maria Puig de la Bellacasa’s essay “Making Time for Soil.” Absorbed by the space, voice and text will add new layers to the substrate. Join the reading group to explore new ways of cultivating care labours as a salve for the exhausted soils that sustain us.
The COMPOSTING reading group is co-convened by Dr Astrida Neimanis, Senior Lecturer, Department of Gender and Cultural Studies, The University of Sydney.
Astrida Neimanis is a feminist writer and teacher who currently works at the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney on Gadigal land. Her most recent book is Bodies of Water: Posthuman Feminist Phenomenology (2017). She is Associate Editor of the journal Environmental Humanities (Duke University Press), a Key Researcher with the Sydney Environment Institute and co-convenor (with Jennifer Mae Hamilton) of the Composting: Feminisms and the Environmental Humanities reading group. This is a free event. Bookings are not required.
