Join the final talk of the Life Futures project with commissioned artists Hannah Honeywill, melissandre varin, Patricia Domínguez and Antonia Taulis, and postcoronialism (Abhijan Toto and Jessika), moderated by Daniele Lorenzini, Carolina Rito and Federico Testa. This event will be an opportunity to hear from the participating artists about the new works exploring the conditions of life during the pandemic, and imagining new possibilities for a post-Covid future.
The exhibition is part of the Life Future project, led by Daniele Lorenzini, Carolina Rito and Federico Testa, and supported by Coventry University, Warwick University and the Herbert Gallery and Museum as part of the city-wide initiatives of the City of Culture programme.
Life Futures is part of the Biopolitics & Democracy. Together with local and international artists, cultural stakeholders, and philosophers, Biopolitics and Democracy aims to foster public and collective reflection on the challenges democracies and democratic rights face in a time of pandemic. Is striving to protect the biological security of the population compatible with the full exercise of democratic participation? Focusing on the notion of democracy broadly construed, we aim to raise awareness about ideas and practices of democratic agency and participation, asking how they could face the challenges presented by the pandemic.
