Un/Learning Archives in the Age of the Sixth Extinction
2020-21

A workshop and fieldwork project as part of the Whole Life Academy II, scheduled for June 2020 online and April 2021 in Berlin at Silent Green and
the Haus der Kulteren der Welt.

This workshop deals with archives as related to natural sites, climate change, deep time, and the built environment. Can interactions with nontraditional archives rebuild the archive as a non-imperial institution?

In collaboration with Priyanka Basu, Imani Jacqueline Brown, and Dubravka Sekulic.

Details forthcoming.



The toxic chemical fog used by the Nazis to camouflage the German Battleship Tirpitz during an attack on Norway stunted the trees in Norwegian forests.
Evidence is still present in the trees' growth rings today. Dendrochronology, ecology, and war.
