"How Many Natures Can Nature Nurture?"

A Study Session with Pedro Neves Marques

02 Jun 2016

"How Many Natures Can Nature Nurture?" is a general title for a series of inquiries on the impact of the anthropological concept of multinaturalism on ecological ideas and struggles. Developed in contact with Amerindian cosmologies, multinaturalism explodes any unilinear perspective on nature, but it also opens up other images of the environment, the body, and the social. For it is not simply a relativist matter of many natures in contrast to modern nature but of multiple variations on the relations and metamorphosis that put nature and culture at play, at each instance, for different positions.

 

Pedro Neves Marques is a writer and visual artist. He is the editor of the anthology The Forest and the School: Where to Sit at the Dinner Table? (2014-2015), and of the fiction books The Integration Process (2012) and Dying in America (forthcoming). He was a guest-editor for e-flux journal’s Supercommunity issue or the 65th Venice Biennale: All The World’s Futures (2015). Among other venues he has exhibited at Kadist Foundation (Paris), e-flux (with Mariana Silva, New York), Sculpture Center (New York), 12th Cuenca Biennial (Cuenca), EDP Foundation (with André Romão, Lisbon), and Serralves Museum for Contemporary Art (Oporto). Together with artist Mariana Silva, he runs inhabitants, an online channel for exploratory video and documentary reporting (http://inhabitants-tv.org/).
