Aqualiteracies: thinking~feeling with waters
Daniela Medina Poch and Elizabeth Gallón Droste
29.11.2022 — 13.12.2022, Online 5 sessions
A Fluid Archive of Interspecies Communications in Hybrid Temporalities. How do we communicate with water? What hybrid communication protocols do we establish in these dialogues? How can we situate ourselves within an ecocentric context in everyday life?
Acknowledging water as a living archive of situated knowledge, we seek to create the Fluid Archive of Aqualiteracies, a framework of perceptions and approaches that will gather the sensitive and speculative experiences of diverse bodies: multiple ways of inhabiting and communicating with waters. We will approach everyday multispecies communications and performativities as instances of futurity in the face of the current water crisis. How can we listen to what water asks of us in different contexts and how can we project intentional messages into it?
Colombian artists and researchers Daniela Medina Poch and Elizabeth Gallón Droste propose a joint exploration and exchange aimed at generating dialogues, dynamics, and guidelines to reveal and disseminate aqualiteracy across Latin America.
