Publishing Practices. Gathering Collectives # 1: Casa Kuà and Sickness Affinity Group

18-19 December 2021

Contested Landscapes is dedicated to the often neglected rural space, its landscapes and its producers. Rural production acts in the complex fabric of human and non-human life, between state regulations and regional as well as global market structures. Issues of industrialization, biodiversity, climate change and sustainability shape everyday agricultural life. To this end, the event seeks an exchange between artists, rural producers, urbanists and city dwellers, since the city is hardly thinkable without rural production.

Publishing Practices

Publishing Practices is a yearly program committed to an expanded idea of publishing not confined to the production and dissemination of printed matters but open to a multi-sensorial reflection on other ways to know and exist. 

How can we dismantle the way we know the world? What if the iterative power of knowledge as affirmed and reinforced by patriarchal, colonial and capitalist paradigms is replaced by publishing virtuality, its capacity to re-imagine the wor(l)d as “contingency and possibility” rather than “necessity and determinacy” (Denise Ferreira da Silva)? In which ways can publishing be activated as the ground for collective solidarity and inseparability, and participate in the undoing of fixed marginalities and boundaries?

Mes nouveau plafonds – My new ceilings

30.05.2021

Mes nouveau plafonds is the title of one of the first photographic series conceived by artist Georges Senga (Lubumbashi, RDC, 1983, based in the Netherlands). The series was focused on the ceilings of family houses that Senga photographed in his home city Lubumbashi, second city of the Democratic Republic of Congo and capital of the rich minerary Province of Katanga. The work is a survey on the way people inhabit and experience daily life in the city and a way to narrate the massive economical and social transformations of the last decades.
