Language for Climate Care
2024
by Ania Moleda and Clarinde Wesselink

Language of Climate Care is a gradual and collective research process to rethink and create ways of responding and relating to the climate emergency for spatial, artistic, and design practices. The workshop process focuses on being in uncertainty together and tooling up for reshaping the currently dominant relationships between language and practice. It is an invitation to ask what we need to learn and unlearn to create a caring practice, how to connect with emotions to practise care, and how to relate through care.

In the workshop Language for Climate Care, we will explore two theoretical notions that can assist us in expanding our understanding of care through movement and language. Through the notion of minor gestures defined by philosopher Erin Manning we will dive deeper into relationships between our bodies and space. While the concept of the second body by novelist Daisy Hildyard will help us reflect on ways in which we could embody a relation with ecosystems that are much larger than us or our immediate spaces. Together we will ask how to express the relationships formed through that embodiment, and what qualities can emerge between those expressions.

The session is a part of ARIAS’s Care Ecologies work group and is developed by spatial researcher Ania Molenda in collaboration with movement artist Clarinde Wesselink.
