“In this talk, Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay will present his ERC Starting Grant project “CoFutures: Pathways to Possible Presents” and its core ideas related to global future fictions, and how these fictions offer us ways of speculating, imagining, and in some cases even anticipating multiple possible futures by opening up the multiplicity of presents. He presents some of the broader discussions within the field of global future fictions and how these are distributed in the different parts of the CoFutures project, and how some of the fundamental steps of the CoFutures project invoke and combine ideas from different digital storytelling technologies and speculative design practices.”

Talking about the Ants

February 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMT
Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo, Fossveien 24
Oslo, Oslo 0551

Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay will talk about the "Ant Network Theory” that he has developed together with Geoffrey C. Bowker. Chattopadhyay will discuss how a flexible notion of multiple temporalities can be developed by playing with scales. The long history of science fictional engagement with other planetary creatures, especially insects and non-human beings can serve as a useful entry point into contemporary discussions that challenge us to think past the anthropocentrism of the anthropocene, including the discourses of guardianship and environmental care, to a de-centered and dehumanized future oriented ethics of hybridity.
