The second edition of the Whole Life Academy takes up the archive as a space for dialogue, collective knowledge production and mobilization in the midst of current social and political upheaval. Alternative archival methods and practices are explored in relation to urgent discussions on natural and cultural ecologies, on decolonizing and rereading archival objects, and on the ways that digital and analogue tools can re-open historical narratives and canons.
A public program of panels, screenings, object viewings, talks, and more is planned for 2022.
The first edition took place in Dresden in May 2019.
