Ecologies of Care

You are kindly invited to join the online screening of Angela Anderson's „Three (or more) Ecologies - A Feminist Articulation of Eco-intersectionality – Part I: For the World to Live, Patriarchy Must Die" from 2019 (37min), followed by a discussion between the filmmaker and feminist activist and historian Silvia Federici, whose interview serves as a discursive frame within the film.

The way one relates to land, water, and other so-called natural resources is reflected in the way goods, relations, and affinities are produced. Economic models that devalue and obstruct care produce the subjectivities that drive the current climate crisis and the ongoing disruption/destruction of ecosystems, displacing both humans and other-than humans, with blatant disregard for the embodied knowledge these ecosystems cultivate and nourish. In her video work Three (or more) Ecologies: A Feminist Articulation of Eco-intersectionality – Part I: For the World to Live, Patriarchy Must Die from 2019, Angela Anderson brings together two geographically disparate locations on the globe: North Dakota and Rojava (Northern Syria). The film contrasts the highly industrial/technical nature of the destructive fracking industry in North Dakota’s Bakken region with a women’s autonomous village project in Rojava, emphasizing the urgent need for a societal shift towards relations of empathy and care.

Following the screening will be a conversation with the eminent feminist thinker and activist Silvia Federici on the topics of care, eco-intersectional empathy, and the necessity of redefining value in the face of impending ecological collapse.

The event is sponsored by the Institute for Diversity and Gender Studies at University Mozarteum in Salzburg.
