The Study Sessions will be held in English, and you are welcome to join in at any time.

This practice-based seminar is situated in the Master in Critical Studies program at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, but open to all who are interested. Together we explore the theme of extractivism and various artistic approaches to it.

This Open Study Session will be the last one of the series. It will be organized by Olivia Golde, Ayala Shoshana Guy, Lucia Kagramanyan, Susanna Delali A. Nuwordu, Mariama Sow, and Jiachen Xu. Under the title Scaling-In, searching for connection, we will try to gather the knowledge that has been raised, the experiences that were made – and to embody them each in some way. We ask: How can we relate with our bodies and find opposing modes to extractivism?
