The Art of Assembly
VI: Assembling More Than Humans (Radha D‘Souza, Sibylle Peters & Florian Malzacher)
/

Drawing on insights from indigenous cultures and everyday practices, D’Souza’s talk focuses on the centrality of assembly for collective life among animals and humans. Capitalist modernity introduces a rupture between natures, peoples and places by transforming nature into property, people into ‘labour force’ and place into territory. The concept of rights in liberal theory and practice plays a critical role in transforming a natural relationship into a legal one founded on property and contract. The challenge is to go beyond “othering” nature and reimagine a reciprocal relationship with it.
