Kinship Group 26
“Kinship Group 26” is a group of four human bodies that found one another in 2020, who have never met in person, but who have become familiar through a screen. They meet weekly and consider ritual, kinship and more-than-human entanglements as part of a collaborative process.
They are Stefanie Wenner (Germany), professor in Applied Theater Studies and Dramaturgy at Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden and an artist considering complex entanglements; Craig Slee (UK) writer and philosopher with Cerebral Palsy, an "animist crip-mythic" who considers unheard ableism in story and process; Loes Damhof (Netherlands), futures literacy consultant at Hanze University of Applied Sciences (UNESCO) who uses education and futures literacy as a world-making tool; and Shane Finan (Ireland), an artist exploring how technology affects human and nonhuman behaviours.
Shane was also invited artist-in-residence at Swap Space Graz in April 2022, and both groups will share a conversation for AMRO 2022. https://shanefinan.org
