Usufructuaries of earth ~ convened by BAK in Utrecht, with artist (and longstanding DAI tutor Curating Positions) Marwa Arsanios ~ a project that inquires into the practice of ethically sharing the earth’s usufruct ( “use of the fruits”). Unfolding in three eponymous chapters, it consists of an exhibition with artworks by Arsanios; a publication on BAK’s online publishing forum Prospections, which functions as a public research and learning curriculum brought to life together with a federation of reading groups in Rotterdam, London, and Berlin; and a convention with artists, as well as other thinkers and social actors, gathering to share and learn on usufruct as a way of undoing property from the regimes of privatization that perpetually usurp the earth’s resources for the interests of a select few. Apart from Marwa, there are contributions by Veronica Gago, Lucí Cavallero, Brenna Bhandar, MADEYOULOOK, Yvonne Phyllis, Grupo Semillas, Lama Khatib, Joud Al-Tamimi, Grace Lostia, Massimiliano (Mao) Mollona, Philip Rizk, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Shela Sheikh, Wietske Maas, Samanta Arango Orozco, Aya Bseiso and, last but not least our amazing Philippa Driest (DAI, 2021).
