Seed Freedom: Economy of Care

05.29.2024
6:00 pm–8:00 pm

Food is the connector of the web of life. Respecting the freedom of the seed to renew and multiply, we will explore the future of food and seeds through a regenerative seed workshop and film screening. Through participatory gestures, we will think about how to frame a new scaffolding for our food system and consider what seed intelligence can teach us. How can an economy of care modeled on seeds and seed preservation be the foundation of living economies of the future?

 

This program will feature a screening of Wild Relatives (2018) by Jumana Manna and a workshop led by artist and filmmaker Zacarías González and artist Maya Serhan.

 

Zacarías González is an interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker. His work centers on exploring ways radically rethinking the anthropogenic power structures that are rooted in domination and oppression by using them as an opportunity to create work about the necessity of interconnection in our lives. His work on the intersection of how to generate and install models for social interactions provide new ways to engage with the concept of care. The themes of his work revolve around re-signifying food from simply something we eat to how it informs space and place within our communities. González’s approach utilizes multiple mediums from long-term projects to arte útil (literally, useful art; art as a benefit and a tool) and film, performance, installation as social structure, to further explore agriculture, education, healthcare, and migration in opposition to the dominant systems of power.

 

Jumana Manna is a visual artist and filmmaker. Her work explores how power is articulated, focusing on the body, land and materiality in relation to colonial inheritances and histories of place. Through sculpture, filmmaking, and occasional writing, Manna deals with the paradoxes of preservation practices, particularly within the fields of architecture, agriculture and law. Her practice considers the tension between the modernist traditions of categorisation and conservation and the unruliness of ruination, life and its regeneration. Jumana was raised in Jerusalem and lives in Berlin.
