MUTANT ECOLOGIES: SEMINAR AND BOOK LAUNCH
December 7, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm GMT
What are the political implications of genetic engineering in the twenty-first century? How is life industrially engineered? What kind of lives emerge from contemporary biological assembly lines? But also: How are these gene-edited organisms used as living means of production in the chemical industry, in agriculture, in medicine and pharmaceutics, etc.? How are they transforming the way people work and live in agricultural lands, in industrial facilities, in barnyards and slaughterhouses, in biotech labs and medical clinics?
Starting with these questions, the authors of ‘Mutant Ecologies: Manufacturing Life in the Age of Genomic Capital’ facilitate a collective reflection on new genome editing techniques and the new forms
of extraction and exploitation they facilitate.
The meeting will be followed by a social at MayDay Rooms.
