Becoming Earthly (building on Bruno Latour) reflects a need to develop a shift in perspective towards care for the thin skin of the earth that is the atmosphere and topsoil on which all life depends. We surprisingly know very little about this skin.

The Barn is inviting applications from artists working across all media who are looking to address this challenge.

This is a chance to connect with a host of brilliant ecological artists and thinkers to develop personal practices. Sessions will be hosted by artist John Newling (see exhibition review from March), artist researcher Wallace Heim (founder Editor of the Ashden Directory), philosopher Johan Siebers and anthropologist and feldenkrais practitioner Paolo Maccagno.

Screening/Reading: Donna Haraway Storytelling for Earthly Survival

April 3, 2017

Donna Haraway: Storytelling for Earthly Survival
Glasgow Film Theatre, Rose Street, Glasgow
Sunday 23 April 2017  17:15

In this portrait of Haraway, filmmaker Fabrizio Terranova explores her playful, humorous and sincere approach to narrative when dealing with the substantial issues facing human beings as co-habitants of planet earth. Over several weeks Terranova lived in Haraway’s Californian home, filming her and dog Cayenne, within their own domestic universe. Combining this original footage with projections and archival material, Terranova has created a filmic fable in tune with Haraway’s own unique and engaging approach to storytelling.

Director Fabrizio Terranova will join us for a Q&A following the screening.
