Event: Disorganising Metabolisms

As part of ‘Disorganising’ Marrickville School of Economics are collaborating with the School of Instituting Otherwise and the Food Art Research Network to explore economies that foster circularity, interdependence and establish bio-culturally diverse principles that circumvent capitalist paradigms of risk and profit. The workshop explores how artist led economies are reimagining collective health in a metabolic relationship to the earth/soil/gut biome.

The workshop will explore protocols for inefficient mapping with artist Linda Knight, the metabolism as a site for disorganising our relationship to capitalism, and set out key principles for community economies. The last part of the seminar will work via groups to build an MSE Glossary for bio-culturally diverse economies and map some institutions by artists that explore food as a collective resource, beginning wth Cocina Collaboratorio, Tenacious Bee, Company Drinks, Manthithoppu Milk Coperative Society. 

The workshop will be conducted in English and welcomes people from anywhere with an agreeable time zone cross over.
