As part of this year’s edition of Fracto, Occulto’s editor Alice Cannavà curates three side events that cover her three main areas of interest and action: interdisciplinary research between science, humanities and art, independent publishing, and experimental music.

Panel Discussion

Amanda Crompton
Amanda Crompton (Archaeologist – Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin)
Regine Rapp (Art historian, curator – Art Laboratory Berlin)
Constanza Mendoza (Visual artist, game designer – Laboratorio de Pensamiento Lúdico, Berlin/Barcelona)
Moderated by Alice Cannava (Editor, curator, designer/coder – Occulto, Berlin)

How we can think, research, document, and narrate the animal world beyond anthropocentrism? The three guests will present projects and experiences that relate to this question from different perspectives and fields: art history and curatorship (Regine Rapp), visual arts and game design (Constanza Mendoza) and academic research (Amanda Crompton). An open and informal discussion with the moderator, FRACTO curators and the audience will follow the presentations.
