Join us at the Soil Symposium, curated and moderated by Bronwyn Bailey-Charteris! The Soil Symposium is a cross disciplinary meeting place for artists and researchers to discuss the matter, memories and futures of soil, and it departs from the artwork The Soil Faculty, presented by Swedish art and agriculture group Kultivator, made for the exhibition The Experimental Field at Accelerator 2021.
The symposium is a gathering site for the researchers from many different fields who have contributed to the exhibition. In a practical way we aim to share interdisciplinary perspectives on the vast topic of soil as experimental matter.
