This reading group is teamed with the launch of the Feral Labs Node Book #2: Feralities published by Bioart Society and Projekt Atol Institute in the context of the project Rewilding Cultures.

As the second in the series of Feral Labs Node Books, this publication leans further to the feral to explore a multitude of approaches for embracing, occupying and thinking-with feralities. This semi-wild compilation brings together artists, designers, writers, theorists, hackers and feral economists working with the feral in practice. These are positioned alongside reflections, strategies and stories from the Rewilding Cultures project partners each sharing their personal approaches to feral knowledge production within their “Feral Labs”. Unconforming in form and formulation this Node Book is made up of essays, manuals, polyvocal correspondences, graphic essays, collages, interviews, lexicons.

In this special edition of Reading Matters we will raise a glass to the Node Book and read two contributions: Liberatory laboratories: A feral future for art-science collaborations by Chessa Adsit-Morris and Field notes from Field_Notes from Field_Notes participants between 2011-2023.

To receive a copy of the text in advance please contact by 27 August 2024. The text will also be collectively read aloud at the start of the reading circle.
