(Un)safe Conversations with Uriel Orlow


Conversing with leaves and listening to ghosts

Uriel Orlow will present some of his recent projects which look at human-plant entanglements, with plants as active agents in history and politics. Trying to find new forms of representation Orlow’s practice engages with residues of colonialism, spatial manifestations of memory, social and ecological justice, latent archives and more-than-human witnessing. His multi-media installations, lecture performances or gardens focus on specific locations, micro-histories and forms of haunting and bring different image-regimes and narrative modes into correspondence.

The event will be held in English and the number of participants will be limited to the conference room.

Organization: Gustavo Vicente, Maíra Santos & Paula Caspão (Centre for Theatre Studies – University of Lisbon)
Date: 27th March 2023, 14h00 – 15h30
Venue: Espaço Alkantara (Calçada Marquês de Abrantes, 99)
