Description

Writer and playwright Laura Gustafsson and visual artist Terike Haapoja began their collaboration in 2012, wherein they examine history and society from a non-anthropocentric viewpoint. ‘Bud Book’ coincides with “Becoming” (2020), a video work that explores emerging approaches to oneself, others, and the world. Through interviews with activists, thinkers, artists, caregivers, and others, the piece invites viewers to create alternatives to the Euro-centric, patriarchal, and heterosexist traditional thinking and view of humanity. Based on their responses, it considers what kinds of emerging forms of humanity should be nurtured to allow them to grow and create a sustainable, just future.
