Sensing Nature from Within: Listen to the Trees and Talk with the Flowers

Seminar, talk and after work

27.2 – 27.2 2020


The project Sensing Nature from Within is part international art exhibition featuring 12 artists and artist groups, part extensive programme of lectures, talks, and performances. This third seminar will focus on how we can develop more emphathetic relationships with other spieces. And is it possible, that we could eventually overcome language barriers between human and plant? The growing recognition of non-human intelligence and emotion, opens up new possibilities.

The seminar begins with three lectures followed by a moderated discussion between seminar participants and the audience. If you like to continue the discussions, our cafe is open for happy hour after the seminar.

Tobias Linné: Researcher within Critical Animal Studies and senior lecturer of Media and Communication Studies at Lund University. Explores critical anthropomorphism as a method for understanding other species.

Christine Ödlund: Artist with a longstanding interest in non-human intelligence and language barriers between plants and humans.

Anna-Karin Borg-Karlson: Professor emerita at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Department of Chemistry. Has headed a group of ecological chemistry researchers, studying how plants and insects interact on a chemical level.

Moderator: Diego Galafassi. Artist and Sustainability Researcher at Lund University. Involved in the research project Art4SDG which examines the role of art-based methods for reaching the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
