Date: Sept 15th Time: 18h Free entrance
Join us for the opening of The Power of Collaboration, Treehouse NDSM's second month-long exhibition. This group show features 9 works by local artists that reflect on the immense potential -and nuances- of collective thought and action, as well as a series of lectures and workshops.
The Power of Collaboration attempts to move away from the focus on the individual and reflect on the huge network of connections and interactions at the base of any transformative action. Within a community (be that human, more-than-human or both), members collaborate for protection, nutrition, or just for help to get around. Even the smallest cooperation can have enormous implications, driving the vital force of change needed to tackle the most urgent issues.
But these exchanges do not occur without tension. How do we navigate the strain between individuality and collectivity? What are the boundaries that we set for ourselves or are set for us? What are the conditions for real dialogue to take place? If we really defy anthropocentric narratives based on domination, what would true interspecies cohabitation look like?
