In what ways do we [humans] imagine, think about, and interact with the interdependence of microbial life, and how might we newly encounter “knowing” in our human–non-human entanglements towards a different way of living.
A large farmhouse on the remaining plot of a once-vast farmland has been neglected for over a decade until now. Located in the middle of a new urban-residential area, the farmhouse is now seen as a part of Utrecht’s agricultural heritage. Who will decide on its future and for what?
Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons presents its first biannual exhibition program at its headquarters with Evolved in shared relationships, a solo exhibition by Finnish artist Alma Heikkilä, and Erfgoed (Agricultural Heritage and Land Use), a collective exhibition for the eponymous project running at the Terwijde farmhouse. There exhibitions opened on Saturday, 15 September in conjunction with Uitfeest, the lively, two-day celebration of the new cultural season in Utrecht. Both exhibitions are organized as part of the long-term project and study line Center for Ecological (Un)learning by Casco Art Institute and the Leidsche Rijn-based interdisciplinary collective The Outsiders, and deal with one of the most fundamental dimensions of the commons: ecology.
