Roots & Seeds XXI. Biodiversity Crisis and Plant Resistance (2020-2022) is a cultural project that aims to establish bridges that help alleviate this delay. Through the creation of new imaginaries arising from the intersection of Art and Science, Roots & Seeds XXI it will seek to promote practices that resonate with a wider audience. Throughout the two years that the project will last, we will produce events and activities that generate connections between artists, philosophers, botanists, activists, economists, designers and curators, with the intention of generating dialogues and charting new paths that place the plant world in the center. Understanding the plant world as an agent and not a resource, we will try to imagine new ways of relating to it.
The activities that we will develop (calls for art production, talks, publications, exhibitions, among others) will operate at the intersection of Art and Science, and with them we will promote habits that directly affect the crisis of plant biodiversity. A crisis whose causes and ramifications are impossible to address without transcending the borders that divide the areas of knowledge with which we have been operating for years.
