February 2 from 19:00 -22:00: join Harun Morrison (DAI, 2020) at W139 for the opening of The Spell of the Sensuous, the Sonic Acts Biennial 2024. Harun's contribution consists of two collaborative projects. We are so happy to see that for the evolving multi-authored publication Environmental Justice Questions, Harun teamed up with Olivia Abächerli (DAI, 2019) who contributed the drawings for 50 loose leaf cards. Which song reminds you of the collapse of our planet? Whose fantasies are we living in? Environmental Justice Questions is a compilation of questions for discussion and debate. A range of activists, writers, artworkers, architects, chefs, natural historians, and horticulturalists were invited to propose a question that could stimulate conversation. In a workshop on the third of February from 12:30–14:30, Harun invites you to engage in collective conversations and small-group discussions around questions chosen from this ongoing project.
