PHONOCENE. DESPRET-HARAWAY CONVERSATION
The planet’s voices (Las voces del planeta), Biennal de Pensament Ciutat Oberta (CCCB, oct. 2020)
A conversation between Vinciane Despret and Donna Haraway, in the context of the series, The planet’s voices of the Biennal de Pensament Ciutat Oberta 2020. The conversation works as a continuation of the performative reading Phonocene, which Despret herself performed before this virtual meeting..
This dialogue, according to Haraway, is not about “us”, it is about the world, about all the non-human voices that we had ceased to hear but which, due to lockdown, many of us have rediscovered. The imposed silence, she says, has allowed us to hear the sounds, and this is the first step towards trying to generate a more plural “us” that is meaningful to a personal journey.
