Webinars

As a way of prompting transversal reflection along a common methodology, our chosen research angle is devoted to how water is performed / used in artistic representations of the Anthropocene.

From art installations to film to performance pieces, the use of water as a literal and symbolic performative medium provides the common element uniting these visual art representations.

Our webinars invite dialogues between scholars and artists around chosen themes followed by open discussion with each session’s participants. Registration is free and open to all. Recordings of the webinars will be posted to the site for future viewing.
