Yayo Herrero is an anthropologist, social educator, agricultural engineer, teacher, and ecofeminst. Through her many essays and her ecofeminist practice, Herrero denounces the contradictions of the current model of capitalist development: an unsustainable model based on constant economic growth that ignores the biophysical limits of the planet and its inhabitants, and disregards the social reproduction and care work that is essential to the sustenance of life. The kind of work that is mainly done by women in patriarchal societies and that remains hidden in the domestic world, and thus excluded from social recognition and remuneration.

From the intersection between environmentalism and feminism, Herrero reminds us that we are eco-dependent and interdependent beings, and that our life is subject to limits: limits that arise from the vulnerability and transience of our own bodies and social life, from the scarcity of natural resources, from climate change, from the extinction of biodiversity, and from pollution. For this reason, Yayo Herrero calls for institutions to join citizens and social movements to implement new, sustainable, co-responsible models of society that redefine notions of production and work in favour of approaches that are “biophysically feasible and socioeconomically fair.”

Son[i]a talks to Yayo Herrero about different forms of ecofeminsim, about the political management of desires, expectations, and needs, about the importance of reproductive work and the need to find new patterns of social and institutional co-responsibility, and about the management of the commons.

With music by Jana Winderen, taken from de Soundcloud and Touch catalogue. Her works are also available on Bandcamp.

A grain of rice sits in a field on the banks of the Mekong river. A water buffalo breaks up soil in the Ifugao terraces in the Philippines. A black box containing rice seeds is placed on a shelf inside the Svalbard seed vault at -18°C in Norway. From such a common seed, hidden in plain sight, artist-scholar Elaine Gan weaves a dynamic network of relationships connecting agroecology and more-than-human sociability, subsistence farmers and climate change, contaminated taxonomies and feminist theory.In this podcast, Elaine Gan talks about crop science, feral technologies, the global pandemic, radical difference, the art of noticing, Matsutake mushrooms, and, of course, the blahblahsphere.

César Rendueles
more

When we chat to César Rendueles, the pages of his new book “Contra la igualdad de oportunidades. Un panflento igualirtarista” (Seix Barral, 2020) still smell of fresh ink. We talk about the myth of universal connectivity and technological dystopia. We touch on necropolitics, necroeconomics, and the importance of social ties in processes of social change. We go into museums, libraries, and schools to address the problems of public projects and the potential of egalitarian socialization and political imagination. We broach life and the market, work and care, health and business, meritocracy and privileges... to shed light on our shared fragility and our collective obligation to think about economics in a different way, accepting that we will never start from scratch.

We dig up some unreleased fragments of our conversation with writer, researcher and curator Maria Ptqk. We open the door to indigenous epistemologies that help us identify Western mechanisms of knowledge production and legitimisation, we problematise the notion of invasive species, and, three decades after the Cyborg Manifesto, we put a question from Maria Ptqk to Donna Haraway in a bottle.

We talk to the researcher and curator Maria Ptqk about the possible methodological alliances between art and science. We check out her recent years of research, which have crystalised in the exhibition Science Friction. Life among companion species and in other embodiments and projects. We look at the narrative dimension of scientific knowledge, via Donna Haraway, and at the symbiotic relationships between interdependent organisms through the work of Lynn Margulis. We rethink the complex boundaries between the cultural and natural spheres, and we also embrace the monstrous, in order to call for a multispecies paradigm that overturns human supremacy.

We talk to researcher, teacher, and essayist Jaime Vindel about art, entropy and economics. We go into museums and petrol stations to understand their materiality. We talk about the universal exhibitions of the 19th century and how the removal of objects from their places of origin is directly linked to the process of environmental degradation. We look at their steel and glass pavilions, and find the concrete. We also discuss coal and oil, the concept of productivity, and the dark underbelly of certain visual imaginaries
