Two new documents on queer, feminist and decolonial approaches to ecology in live art practice and theory are now available for free.
The Live Art Development Agency (LADA) Study Room Guides serve students and researchers interested in live art to navigate specific topics. The Study Room Guide Queer, Feminist and Decolonial Ecologies in Live Art draws on the festival EcoFutures, curated by Giulia Casalini and Diana Georgiou in April 2019. This Study Room Guide includes an introduction, surveying artists whose work has explored ecological themes, and it is followed by a number of titles of publications and other resources for further research. Some of the resources can be found at LADA’s physical library space, whilst – where possible – links have been provided to online resources. You can download the Study Room Guide for free at the link below.
The Guide is accompanied by the dossier Queer Feminist Decolonial Ecologies, which gathers six contributions on ecological issues by the authors Amelia Goldberg, Graham Bell Tornado, Amanda Monti, Emma Pavans de Ceccatty, Anna Tokareva and Alex Wilk.
Edited by Diana Georgiou, Katie Goss and Sofia Vranou.
With a preface by Giulia Casalini and Diana Georgiou.
These documents hope to become an archive of the Ecofutures project as well as an invocation for a much more sustainable future.
EcoFutures festival took place in East London in April 2019 and brought together over 70 artists, activists and theorists from all over the world to create a platform for discussion and experimentation around urgent environmental and ecological issues such as climate change, extinction, pollution, health and sustainability through an intersectional, feminist and queer lens.
