This artist talk will look at the relationship between theory and practice, writing and making as distinct, but mutually contaminating activities. Particular attention will be put on concepts and works concerning post-Westphalianism, an idea that addresses the transformation of human organizing structures in a moment of heightened planetary complexity and interdependency.
