Launch event for MEANDER International Platform


Ensayos is part of the launch event of MEANDER International Platform, a web platform where members of four initiatives – MEANDER Society for Ecological Thinking and Artistic Practice (NO/DK), Ensayos (CL/ FR/ US /AU), Instituto Procomum (BR) and ODD (RO/IN) – situated in different parts of the world, come together to exchange ideas and questions regarding our relations to our environments and fellow life forms.

The event will stream on MEANDER’s YouTube channel. A global audience is invited to follow an 8 hour long program, which will be broadcasting from 4 different time zones.

A radio laboratory action by Jasmina Al-Qaisi and Ralf Wendt, proposed by ODD, will be transmitted from the live radio lab and studio of ‘Anybody out there?!’ 100 years of Radio in Germany, D21 Gallery, Leipzig (DE).

Students from the Nomad MFA (Interdisciplinary Master of Fine Arts) at the University of Hartford, Connecticut, led by artists Christy Gast (US) and Camila Marambio (CL), will present their podcast Hydrofeminist METitations # 4: Phase Transitions.
