    Since 2019 the wild urban forest in Osloer Straße between No. 107 and No 108 has become the state territory of Organisms Democracy Berlin Osloer Straße. Thanks to a Pflegevertrag with the Green Spaces Department of the City of Berlin all actions on the territory must be fist decided upon in an Organisms Parlament. Here human parliamentarians negotiate on behalf of of the species they represent and democratically pass government resolutions. These are then implemented on in the territory of Organisms Democracy. In the context of the Constitutional Court the current government period is being critically scrutinized.

    18th November 2023 16.00 – 19.00: Artist Lab Species Politics

    Free entrance, registration via email only (limited capacity)
    Bildhauerwerkstatt des BBK Berlin, Osloer Str. 102, 13359 Berlin  

    Organisms Democracy NGO and Club Real invite 6 culture practitioners/activists/ researchers working with diversity among human beings and other species alike, to join an artist lab where we exchange perspectives that aim to dismantle right wing ideologies behind the common call for rights for “nature”. 

    The artists invited have been selected on the basis of their proximity with specific organisms alongside their projects. We would like to suggest an experiment and artistic practice swap, where the guest artists are invited to present a relevant input speaking as a species, and from the point of view of a species in relation to the question: Where does your species relate in the human political spectrum (left center right)?Specific forms of rulership governing the selected species are to be taken into consideration (i.e. Swarm mentality, etc.). We propose to depart from a collection of texts, tales or accounts of the life of species challenging evolutionary thinking towards a complex, richer and non hierarchical understanding of life. 

    Guest artists & organisms:
    Yann Colonna as the Date Palm (Input: Flaws of Contemporary Left Wing Positions)
    Marie Pierre Leroux as the Slime Mould (Input: Coexistence/Symbiosis as Principle of Life)
    Michelle Marie Letelier as the Huiro (Macrocystis pyrifera)
    Marcela Moraga as the Zebra Mussel (Input: Creatures of Contaminated Diversity – Guerilla Actions)
    Georg Reinhardt as the Fire Ant (Input: Ant Pacifism)
    Nat Skoczylas as Lichen (Anarchist Decentralised Forms of Government)
    Marianna Sonneck as the Aphid (Input: Aphid Care)
    Tuire Tuomisto as the Herring (Input: Swarm Mentality)

    Organisms Democracy NGO and Artists Marianna Sonneck & Georg Reinhardt from Club Real will be facilitating the artistic lab, beginning with short statements by the 8 organisms, then we break in small groups based on themes, where members of the audience are invited to contribute from their human perspectives to the interspecies talk. The thematic conversations are fed back into the bigger round and the session ends with a round of final statements by the 8 species. The session will be recorded by Mathias Lenz with the intention to post produce a first podcast episode for Organisms Radio based on the material generated during the evening. The artist lab is curated by Paz Ponce.
