Staying with the trouble requires making oddkin
Neither an exhibition nor a performance, a conference or an umbrella concept, Making Oddkin – for joy, for trouble, for volcano love is conceived as a four-day ‘outing and coming together’, a practice and process of worlding-with, in company and contextuality.
Drawing inspiration from the mobile term “oddkin,” which was coined by scientist-cultural activist Donna Haraway in order to describe the need for unexpected collaborations and combinations, the new and unpredictable kinships that can be formed beyond the usual genealogical, ethnocentric, anthropocentric relations, Making Oddkin will materialize, sympoietically, in the inter/intra-action of various kinds and kins.
It is an event about human–nonhuman entanglements, about “the unfinished configurations of places, times, matters and meanings,” in which we are entwined and which we need to salvage, as per Haraway (Donna Harraway, Staying with the trouble. Making Kin in the Chthulucene, 2016, Duke University Press).
Making Oddkin will appear, between 7 and 10 September 2018, at several places around the island, such as, the old Loutra (public baths), the abandoned port of Avlaki, along the paths of the wild Nisyrian hot springs, within the tiny public square of Emporio, in the volcano crater, at the Volcanological Museum at Nikia, in the deserted monastic settlement of Nyfios which bares traces of Minoan times, and elsewhere.
