Vortrag

Biodiversity and the Cultural Landscape


Contemporary Matters is a student-initiated platform launched in 2018 raising critical aware-ness on the role of the contemporary in the increasingly transdisciplinary field of art history. We believe that biodiversity constitutes a multifaceted challenge on a global scale. The endan-germent thereof impacts all classes, groups, professions and nations, thus highlighting the en-tanglement of human and non-human agents in our contemporary world and the necessity to put these various affected actors in conversation with each other. In fact, by facilitating an ex-change between rather uncustomary combinations of perspectives on the subject of biodiversi-ty, we can perform (bio-)diversity in the very structure of the conference.
