As scientific research demystifies the complex world of plants, we are gradually opening up to their sensitivity, intelligence and agentivity. More than ever interdisciplinary, this feature draws its references from the fields of science, anthropology and botany. Inevitably, environmental concerns and the impact of human intervention on plant biodiversity figure prominently, while the works suggest different ways of communicating with nature, taking a closer look at the non-individualistic behavior of plants. Generally invited for what they are, but also sometimes for the metaphors they evoke, the plants that appear in these pages sometimes evoke human exploitation and domination, or the collapse of ecosystems - but sometimes also, in a more optimistic way, resistance, solidarity, collaboration and hope for renewal.







Current Issue


This issue examines how working collectively problematizes power relations within art institutions and groups and how this affects the implementation of less hierarchical structures. Given the urgent need to act, in a world where a state of emergency has become permanent, laboratories of social action, interdisciplinary research groups, and international discussion forums are forming on the margins of the art field. Seeking alternative forms of “being together,” these new collectives are reviving the concerns of several decades of shared creation.
