Woods: More-than-Human Curiosity Symposium

On July 29th, 2023, Marianna Szczygielska gave a talk at the fourth edition of the Woods: More-than-Human Curiosity Symposium in Orlické Mountains in Czechia. Her lecture about multispecies worlding was conveniently located near a wild boars’ wallow, but no swines attended this time. Marianna also participated in a panel discussion on The Future of Animal (non-human), Human, and Artificial intelligence with theoretical biologist Filip Jaroš and AI researcher Ivan Sekaj, moderated by art theorist and curator Hana Janečková.
