SUPERCOMMUNITY LIVE [stream]: THE CLIMATIC UNCONSCIOUS

Roxy Theatre, Saskatoon ...

Presented in association with Remai Modern, “Supercommunity Live” brings together editors and contributors to e-flux journal’s expansive four-month publishing project for the 2015 Venice Biennale. Together, the 88 days of contributions to Supercommunity testify to a profound shift in the status of humanity in relation to the planet.
Unstable market forces, the consequences of colonialism, and changes in the Earth’s biosphere have combined to undermine and even invert the border between human and nature that the modern period sought to order and stabilize, often with extreme violence. Today, the resulting crisis in the very idea of what constitutes humanity and nature as distinct entities is only further provoked by economic and political events that don't seem to be reducible to the command of either one. The vast scale of these shifts calls for an equally expansive community of thinkers to be assembled. Supercommunity begins to identify the shape of the problem through guest-edited sections on the universality of corruption, the many faces of apocalypse, the materialist metaphysics of the cosmos, the universe as a gigantic computer, and other themes.
