The Mycological Twist will give a presentation of their artistic practice involving game play and building narratives as a strategy of thinking through ecological relationships. This presentation will be in english.
The Mycological Twist is a project by Eloïse Bonneviot and Anne de Boer, both based in Berlin. They take mycology as a source of inspiration in engaging with ecological and social practices. Their point of interest extends through the mushroom fruiting body into the rotting matter deep below ground level. DIY methods are woven into digital cultures to construct utopias for alternative modes of living. The Mycological Twist started in 2014 in London. Since then, the materialization of the research results in a program of commissions, lectures, camping sessions, performances and works.
