The Anthropocene names a new geological epoch where “Man” is a determining cause of planetary systems change. But who and what is missing from this headline of “humans destroying the planet”?
In its third iteration, Astrida Neimanis and Jennifer Mae Hamilton have invited an extraordinary group of scholars and artists to investigate the theme “want”, including UNSW Art & Design's Dr Lindsay Kelley, Associate Professor Jennifer Biddle, and alumni Betty Grumble and Emma Maye Gibson.
Breaking from the conference format of previous events, the speakers will stage three roundtable discussions on the grounds of the Women’s College at the University of Sydney. From the desirous pull of the fossil fuelled high-life to grass roots activist demands (“what do we want?”), they will ask if it is possible to pursue both extravagant pleasure and intersectional, intergenerational justice. Join in for a day of communal thought, wild performance and excellent coffee and snacks (you know you want it).
