Environmental social scientist Holly Jean Buck and MASS Design Group principal Joseph Kunkel were among the speakers that participated in The World Around In Focus: Land, an afternoon of talks exploring contemporary post-colonial land-use issues. Watch the online event here.
Part of The World Around's year in residence at Guggenheim Museum, the event was the first in a series of "In Focus" events focused on contemporary post-colonial land-use issues and aimed at building a more equitable future.
The event brought together artists, activists and practitioners from around the world across three themed sessions, titled Community, Technology and Ecology, which the organisers said explored "the compelling and important stories of artists, researchers, designers, scientists and architects whose work explores the agency of infrastructures and systems that shape our lives and deplete natural resources".
As well as Buck and Kunkel, other speakers included urban planner Renee Kemp-Rotan, artist Simon Denny, anthropologist Elsa Hoover, and multidisciplinary artists Carolina Caycedo and David De Rozas.
