Arterritory Conversations: Detox and Healing for the Planet
What does it mean to be a human and to be alive? What is the footprint we leave on the world, and is it within our power to change that footprint? Is it possible to restart the biosphere, and is that what is happening right now? What is the next step after the demystification of the “crown of creation”? How do we escape the frame of the “economic robot”, or will artificial intelligence push us even deeper into it? Is science the tool that helps us understand the world, or is it perhaps art, in some way, that helps us to do so? What can each of us do, personally, to make this world better?
“It’s finally time that we wake up and realise that all of us – men, women, children – are part of the Big Forest,” we are reminded in one of the interviews in this publication by Puwe Puyanawa, the spiritual leader of the Puyanawa tribe in Brazil.
In this journal, seventeen vivid personalities – artists, philosophers, anthropologists, shamans, designers, curators, architects, directors and scientists – try to find answers to these questions. We believe that genuine, in-depth conversation is one of the last remaining, foolproof sources of meaning in an age of fake news and information overload; it is also, at the same time, a tool for such transformation. According to Theodore Zeldin, valuable conversations are those from which one is “willing to emerge a slightly different person”. We hope that these conversations are worthy of such willingness. Among Arterritory.com’s conversation partners in this publication the reader meets anthropologist and ethnobotanist Wade Davis; doctor of pharmacy Vija Eniņa; artists Ernesto Neto, Marguerite Humeau, Miķelis Fišers, Lin May Saeed and Anton Vidokle; director Stefan Kaegi, who is a co-founder of the Rimini Protokoll project; the PROLOG +1 architecture collective; ecologist and geophilosopher David Abram; and others.
