Silencing / Unsilencing Nature. A Participatory Visual Essay on the Right to Flourish
Ebook format Pdf readable on these devices:
The essay is grounded in a reflection on the discursive-material knot, which uses a macro-(con) textual approach to discourse, but also allocates a non-hierarchical position to the material, ecognizing its agency. This ontological model is then used to analyse the discursive-material struggles of/over nature, and nonhuman living beings. In particular, the essay reports on a series of Silencing / Unsilencing Nature workshops, which were part of the Lyssna! project, and showcases how the photographic signifying practices of a group of youngsters contributed to the unsilencing of nature, and the disruption of several hegemonic discourses.
