Towards Ecologies of Access was a discursive event in April 2020 forming part of Frame Contemporary Art Finland’s Rehearsing Hospitalities public programme. The event took the form of online conversations between artists Kristiina Koskentola and Pia Lindman and curators Lars Bang Larsen and Mi You.
During the session, the event was open to audiences to follow online through a live written transcription of the discussion with additional images, references and links to videos embedded. An edited version of the transcript and an audio recording of the Zoom session are now available on Frame’s website.
In Towards Ecologies of Access the participants discussed access to knowledge and experiences outside of Western epistemological binaries such as the body-soul, material-virtual and human-non-human divide.
In their four-hour session they referenced different practices and cultural traditions such as shamanism, subsensorial ways of knowing and psychedelia—situated, embodied ways of knowing that are often marginalised or rendered invalid within Western and colonial knowledge systems.
Towards Ecologies of Access was moderated by Frame’s Head of Programme Jussi Koitela and Associate Programme Curator Yvonne Billimore. Transcription was written by artist Iona Roisin.
