Planetary Embodiment: Cooking with Words for Systemic Change and Solidarity, 2023
publication | riso print on paper | collaboration

Planetary Embodiment (2021-2023) is a seminar and transdisciplinary artistic practice coordinated by Luïza Luz at the Berlin University of Arts (UdK) as part of Studium Generale. Engaging with ‘The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action,’ as suggested by Audre Lorde, we envisioned this book with the intention of investigating the power of words in breaking silences and promoting awareness of intersectional environmentalism. The content was developed through workshops and guest lectures in collaboration with Andrea Galano Toro, gal sherizly, Denilson Baniwa, participants, and friends. In reciprocity for the causes we are addressing, the profits from this book will be directed toward initiatives supporting Indigenous, land, human, and more-than-
human rights.

The publication includes  
1) Thinking with words, foraged and defined by students and external contributors 
2) Food for thought, recipes that activate the terms proposing ways to cultivate cultures of solidarity and care for the Earth and each other
3) Compost: A conversation between Luïza Luz, and Denilson Baniwa,besides the introduction, theeditors note, and contributors list.

Planetary Embodiment: Being All Ears @ Refuge Worldwide, 2023
radio show | pre-launch | collaboration

From the classrooms to the radio, Planetary Embodiment beams quantum love frequencies to all ears 4 a healing planet. Delving into unnoticed details, activating all senses, breaking silences, and giving space to sink in: from hearing to tasting, from sensing to feeling, from bottom to top, side-to-side, sonically bounced, simultaneously, from the past, present, and futures. Beyond the surfaces. Beyond the end of this world.

This session is a sneak peek of the book "Planetary Embodiment: Cooking with Words for Systemic Change and Solidarity." Join them for the launch at Hopscotch Reading Room on September 9th at 19:19.

in collaboration with __ O R S H I & Luïza Luz
