International Workshop | Digital Mapping of Contemporaneity, Activism & Ecology
Organised as part of the project Circulating Narratives - Entangling Communities: Case Studies in Global Performance Art, Research Area 2: "Travelling Matters". In collaboration with metaLAB (at) Harvard & FU Berlin, ZK/U Berlin – Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik. Hosted by Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF) in Berlin.

This workshop will test methods and investigative tools/mappings to raise awareness of climate resilience through narrative and performative interventions. It brings together academics, artists and activists to develop and introduce new prototypes for knowledge dissemination and display. In three sections: Case Studies in Planetary Agencies, Co-Exploring Current Projects and Case Studies in Storytelling and Interspecies Connections we will explore new strategies of Digital Mapping of Contemporaneity, Activism & Ecology.
The workshop will focus on lectures and discussions as well as transdisciplinary networking, brainstorming and co-exploration activities. Methods of storytelling, fictional archives and the rewriting of social constructs through community building will be presented in the form of knowledge visualizations as effective resiliencies against master narratives in the context of questions of sustainability.
