In Kooperation mit Situated knowledge / Global ecologies: a collaborative Walkshop Ramble
Together with female leader of the struggle for land rights in Brazil, the artist Barbara Marcel and the journalist Camila Nobrega will host a debate, with the focus on the ongoing narratives about social-environmental conflicts and the current situation of struggle in Brazil not only for the right to land, but for the right to livelihoods, community practices and common imaginaries. From a local-global perspective the aim is to discuss asymmetries of power related to land rights and, simultaneously, to the production of discourses. The role of patriarchy and coloniality in organizing bodies and territories will be in the core of the discussion.
The public talk is at the same time the closing debate of Situated knowledge / Global ecologies: a collaborative Walkshop Ramble on social-ecological justice, initiated by Nobrega and Marcel, which will take place between 2 and 4 September in Prinzessinnengarten Kreuzberg in Berlin. The project brings together academic researchers with environmental activists, journalists and artists, for an experimental format of knowledge exchange. The main themes are guided by different understandings of what has been called ecology and the global dynamics of knowledge production and narratives about the territories, seeking decolonial and antipatriarchal views. Although the debate has a global dimension, the starting point is the Brazil-Germany relationship.
