Botanical Comrades 植物同志: Plants Practice Politics with Zheng Bo

07 Nov 2020 / Gropius Bau Berlin, DE

On 7 November, which marks the Solar Term Beginning of Winter (立冬) in the East Asian lunisolar calendar, artist and theorist Zheng Bo will be joined by biologists Regine Hengge, Roosa Laitinen and Matthias Rillig to speculate about how plants practice politics. Zheng understands politics as a bodily practice that can only take place in exchange with others, particularly through interspecies relationships.
