In his work, YOERI GUÉPIN (DAI, 2013) connects social processes with ecosystems. His practice consists of research projects, performative lectures and workshops, ecological community projects, films and installations. For his solo exhibition The Smallest Gesture, Guépin is working with his father and grandmother on a film and installation in which they link the loss of biodiversity and industrial forms of agriculture to his father's illness. How can we tell stories from marginalized and more than human perspectives that give us new insight into the current epistemological socio-environmental crisis?

IT GO HAVE TO ADJUST. ON LANGUAGE AS PARASITE. Pelumi Adejumo (DAI, 2023) and Lucas Lugarinho Braga (DAI, 2023) participate, among other artists, in an exhibition at SAVVY in Berlin, curated by Sagal Farah and Billy Fowo ( who are also tutors of SAVVY's COOP study group at DAI). The show is part of a series of exercises, research and public programming reflecting on the parasitic character of language and on the subversive power of laughter. If we are “participants in the future of our languages” (Ocean Vuong), how can we make space for more variants of influences in order to facilitate the right climate and conditions for subversive feminist, anti-racist and de-colonial practices within art and publishing? If language is there to make space for our survival, can we find procedures for optimising our communication to aid the creation of networks that can parasitize towards the proliferation and development of liberating practices?
