Welcome! Launching a four-year art and research project
Humus economicus is an art and research initiative that seeks to counteract soil blindness, and investigate the future and value of soil in urbanised landscapes.
It is initiated by artist and environmental humanities researcher Janna Holmstedt, National Historical Museums, Sweden. The project mobilizes a team of artists, environmental-, urban-, gender-, and heritage scholars, and connects with a growing number of soil stewards to counteract soil blindness, decolonize conceptualizations of nature, transform public knowledge and imaginaries of soils, and catalyse societal change.
Through our Humus Economicus Collaboratory we will connect with networks, individuals and organizations, as well as initiate a series of public events and workshops. We look forward to meeting you!
