collection of handmade postcards

We invite everyone who is participating in the main institute online (4-8 July, Dublin/zoom), and/or who participated in the pre institute in Estonia (28-30 April), to contribute to this reflective response ‘postcard exchange’. We hope to achieve an exchange of affective and artistic responses to the different post/extractivist sites across our project. To participate, select one of the art postcard images above that resonates with a post/extractivist site from a location you have visited (perhaps at home or someplace you have travelled). In addressing your response to a site of post/extractivism, you could use any of the prompts in the call below for example. Finally, post your card and the art image selected to, subject line: ‘Postcard Exchange’.
