Particle Episode 17: ROGER MALINA, NINA CZEGLEDY, JOEL SLAYTON MARÍA ANTONIA GONZÁLEZ VALERIO - HOSTED BY DANIELLE SIEMBIEDA AND VICTORIA VESNA
"If you create chaos in the system, that opens for change, but who can take part in that change? What if the change is in the wrong hands?"
The second edition of Post-Pandemic Provocations, hosted conjointly by Leonardo/The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (Leonardo/(ISAST) and the ArtSci Center features the incredible Provocateur cast consisting of Roger Malina, Nina Czegledy, Joel Slayton, Victoria Vesna, Danielle Siembieda and features special guest María Antonia González Valerio.
This entangled and entirely provocative conversation disobeys conventional thinking urging listeners to think critically and deeply about the current situation we are facing internationally. Stemming from the pandemic, this conversation pays specific attention to local re-thinking as we negotiate the post-pandemic condition. The diverse group begins with critical theory about body politics and intentional disobedience then dendritically branches off into discussions of chaos and change, xenophobia in the human and the more-than-human worlds, empathy as a form of protest and informal economies and innovation. This conversation, and the multiplicities of opinions will take you on a wild (and necessary) ride into the complexities of our now.
