Embodiment and Environmental Art Practice


Faculty Lead: Petra Kuppers

This Think-Act Tank lies at the conjunction of queer ecopoetics, disability studies, critical race studies, indigenous studies, and environmental studies. The group wants to learn from each other about disability cultural methods, indigenous art and world making, African-American performance approaches, and more. Together, they want to shape a complex tool-set to approach living in a changing natural world which impacts people differently, dependent on histories of violence and their attendant environmental effects. How do our different thinking and acting methods prepare us for change, and how can we teach about these methods together? This Think-Act Tank wants to generate energies toward making public the insights gathered in their disciplines about how to live well in change, stay creative under pressure, and find new balances in human and other-than-human collaborative fields. Products/outcomes will include public presentations and performances, and publications developed individually and in collaboration.
