Make flesh,
How to change paradigm in entangled worlds?

The Anthropocene reveals the entanglement of all that constitutes the world, as well as the power of all beings whose subjectivity we have denied until today. This upheaval forces us to tend towards another relation to the world, "Towards a cosmomorphic world". It makes the paradigm shift a clear goal. The thought and the theories are not enough any more, it is necessary now to embody them, to ingest them so that they come from our body, from our flesh and transform themselves into acts.


With Station 15, it is a matter of speculating on how this transformation, this redefinition of our ontological condition. Whether artistic, scientific, philosophical, eco-feminist or legal, these paths of change are tools for exploring new ways of living in tangled and multiple worlds. The areas of contact between the living, subjugated nested in an environment common to all, are at the heart of this station. Artists and researchers, whose responsibility is here convened, come to share their imaginations to consider new conditions of cohabitation.
