Garden of Tinguely Museum, Paul Sacher-Anlage 2, 4002 Basel
(meeting at the museum’s info point)
On the beautiful riverside premises of pharmaceutical giant Roche’s very own Tinguely Museum, we will gather in and for a ‚Waste Garden‘ Soirée. This is the first part of our trilogy loosely tied to the museum’s thematic exhibition ‚Territories of Waste‘, opening September 14th. Together with Polish artist Diana Lelonek and amidst companions from her ongoing research project ‚Center for the Living Things‘, we will read ‚Wasteplants: Towards· a Precarious Aesthetics and Ephemeral Heritage‘. The short text challenges our understanding of the ideas of conservation and contamination, as well as creativity. If we no longer associate waste solely with destruction and the end of things, we will get to peek into – and maybe even learn from – the vibrant, nonhuman collectives of wasteplants.
A magic potion, neither ’natural‘ nor cultivated, but collectively compos(t)ed by BRS motherboarders and our partner in crime will send our senses wandering and our thoughts to new directions.
For those who want to have a look at the text beforehand, you can find the English version here a few days before the Soirée.
The Soirée will be held in English. All genders are welcome.
