Colonial/descolonial botany. Another natural history // Culturgest

How has colonial history marked our relationship with nature? In a two late afternoons program, we gather several disciplines of knowledge to open the photographic archives of contemporary Portuguese history, trying to see them as documents that, simultaneously, reveal traces of multiple ecologies, and are the expression of how colonial history marked nature.

Vibrating in the World will bring us to a reflection of philosopher and journalist Séverine Kodjo-Grandvaux on the requirement contemporary of inhabiting the world in a reinstated way, contradicting the movement imposed by colonialism, that separated us from all things alive. In Colonial Botany, Decolonial Botany we open the dialogue about the epistemological perspectives of past colonial science crossing them with contemporary ways of thought
