Sept 27 ~ VAC

http://www.vac.caIncubator Workshop Series: Saprotrophs Screening and presentation
Saprotrophs is a hybrid screening and lecture event to be presented at the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington, focused on historicizing ideas of growth and decay, as they’ve evolved from the earth’s ancient ecologies to landscapes of industrialized capitalism. The word saprotroph refers to species of plant, animal, or (most commonly) fungus that survive by feeding on the dead remains of living creatures. Mediating ecological processes of growth and decay, saprotrophs have sustained the earth’s development by balancing historical ratios of additional and subtraction, accumulation and attenuation.
The event will open with a screening of artist Miles Rufelds’ 2019 essay film, Two or Three Saprophytes. Tonally pitched between Marxist ecological criticism and European Gothic horror, the film tells a hallucinatory narrative of mushrooms, chemicals, machines, and ghosts, contrasting a speculative history of the Industrial Revolution with a broader analysis of the earth’s patterns of growth, decomposition, and fossilization.
Following the film screening, Rufelds will present a new piece of writing, expanding on themes brought up in the film, focusing specifically on contemporary questions surrounding the limits of capitalist growth, contested notions of “degrowth,” ecological activism, and labour agitation.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A and open discussion with the audience.
