Bruno Latour / Frédérique Aït-Touati


Part of the festival “The Mole Keeps on Digging. Animals / Politics / Performance”


English / ca. 60 min.

In a lecture-performance developed with director Frédérique Aït-Touati, Bruno Latour reflects on the relation between human beings and their environment. Plato’s cave is no potential retreat for the sociologist of science, but symbolizes our lives within the fragile stratosphere of the Earth. There is no outside in which we could exist beyond the “critical zone”. Non-humans and natural forms should be viewed as part of another topology, the gaïa-graphy.
