Walk in the Park workshop with Karen Verduijn

February 29, 2024 | 12 - 13.30 PM

To further explore Life of Plants, we invite you to join us on a ‘Walk in the Park’: a visit to the Botanic garden Zuidas with Karen Verduijn, member of the VU Ecopedagogy Reading Club. This tour is in particular connected to the installation Forecast by artist Oscar Santillán; both tour and installation are attempts at including non-humans in considering the complex exploitation of our planet.

As the Botanic garden, located just around the corner from VU campus, houses a wide variety of exotic plants from all over the world, it is a highly suitable place to explore the concept of colonial botany.

If you’re interested in this workshop, you might also want to visit the ART SCIENCE dialogue “Legacy of Colonialism”, on February 28, 4-6 PM.

Start at the VU ART SCIENCE gallery, registration is not necessary, but appreciated. Sign up here.

This event is part of a public programme of the exhibition Life of Plants.
