MaerzMusik 2017 Berlin Storytelling for Earthy Survival

Donna Haraway

Haus der Berliner Festspiele

Tues. 21 March, 2017

“The boundary between science fiction and social reality is an optical illusion.”
Donna Haraway

“Story Telling for Earthly Survival” is a night of readings, film screenings and sound performances that revolves around the hybrid worlds created by American thinker Donna Haraway. As a philosopher, primatologist and feminist, she has shown the links between theory and fiction and worked to subvert the hegemony of masculine visions on nature, science and technology. Her frank and cheerful multi-species feminism keeps influencing and inspiring humans around the world. In her most recent work, Haraway offers provocative new ways of reconfiguring our relations to the earth and all its inhabitants in face of spiraling ecological devastation.
