During the Roots & Seeds XXI workshops, participants from different fields (artists, scientists, philosophers, researchers, curators, cultural agents, and others), whose practices are linked to the plant world in different ways, will analyze the crisis of biodiversity with the intention of proposing sustainable ways of relating to nature. During the event, the participants will carry out a joint mapping of a garden. Beyond its taxonomic information, this cartography will have the intention of making visible discourses that consider plants as agents and not as resources.
Through these workshops, Roots & Seeds XXI seeks to safeguard and promote botanical heritage, weaving scientific knowledge with storytelling and humanities. In this way, the “Multidisciplinary Garden Cartography” will promote the creative potential of artists and scientists working together, fostering multidisciplinary collaboration networks and hybrid methodologies.
An international cooperation project between Ars Electronica (AT), Leonardo-OLATS (FR), University of Barcelona (ES) and Quo Artis (ES) as lead partner. With the collaboration of the Botanical Institute of Barcelona IBB (ES). And with the support of Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
