Community WOODS is delighted to have participated in a panel discussion Floral Collectivism: Postcolonialist Epistemologies that was part of the VIRTUAL IAS (Institute of Advanced Studies) Festival supported by University College London.

Project WOODS – Community for Cultivation, Theory and Art was introduced and further discussed with its members Edith Jeřábková and Tereza Porybná invited by the artist Alexandra Pirici. The discussion was moderated by Maja and Reuben Fowkes (Postsocialist Art Centre UCL) with responses by Ashley Dawson (Professor of Postcolonial Studies CUNY Graduate Center) and Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll (Professor of Global Art University of Birmingham).

The panel drew on artistic and curatorial investigations into the multiplicity of vegetal life to explore the potential of embodied and sensuous approaches to knowledge in providing an alternative to the dominant epistemologies of Western modernity.
