UN/Making Network: Where Art, Ecology and Ethics Meet
Supported in part by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the UN/making Network is a Cultural Studies PhD research-creation project inspired by creative thinkers and makers who undertake temporary, unexpected, necessary or durational acts of un/making so as to acknowledge the liveliness and agency of human and more-than-human beings often othered or rendered absent through anthropogenic perspectives and approaches to land.
Always at risk of encouraging the creation and consumption of more “stuff" or "unhappy objects", practitioners featured on this site often engage at the intersections of art, ecology, post-colonial studies, geography, aesthetics, race theory, gender studies and activism to disrupt colonial, capitalist, patriarchal and extractive systems that reify Euro-centric values and industrialist processes.
