Ecological Reparation – aesthetics, politics and articulations

Talk with Maria Puig de la Bellacasa, Dimitris Papadopoulos and Patrick Bresnihan (joining remotely), facilitated live by Manuela Zechner.

In this session, which mixes presentations, films and open discussion, we’ll have Maria Puig de la Bellacasa and Dimitris Papadopoulos talk about the Ecological Reparation project and their corresponding book – core concepts, films and aesthetic co-research processes. The Ecological Reparation project discusses work engaged in remediating and repairing as well as claiming reparations for more than human ecologies.

We will watch different Ecological Reparation films and explore questions such as: How can ecological thinking and practice enable reparation? How can reparation for damages done be ecological? What is the role of aesthetics, politics, images and imaginaries in ecological reparation? We’ll be joined by Patrick Bresnihan, co-researcher on the Ecological Reparation co-research film ‘In the Midlands of Ireland Bog’s Landscape‘ to hear about Irish bogs and their inscriptions into conflicting reparative and ecomodernist trajectories, on screen and in conversation.
