Territories—Watersheds—Infrastructures is a multi-scalar field documentation and mapping project that positions the Mississippi, its tributaries, and the St. Louis region within its broader watershed—particularly highlighting the complicated intersections of river management, industry and recreation. Multiple methods of field documentations will include photography and video from canoe trips on the river and aerial photography of various high- and low-water rivers stages. The work not only will be used to represent ideas, but also as objects of action for a set of dialogues about responsibility, agency, and possible futures for the Mississippi River Basin. Discussion, exhibition, and installations will all take place atop a working barge on the North Riverfront.

Instagram post 17873208839266219 How do we sense the environment and how does the environment sense us? What can we learn from analyzing the connection between body and environment? 

Margarida Mendes has been investigating how the increase of background noise and chemical unbalance in Mississippi’s petrochemical corridor may be connected with endocrinological and immunity disruptions. By exploring the limits of the sensing body, and the chemical and vibrational continuity between bodies and the environment, she speculates how different sensing ontologies, perceptions of the bodily and mechanisms of registry might lead to different forms of environmental co-habitation.

🔗 Find out more about her study “Environmental Sensing: Refractions of the Infrastructural Body” & explore other case studies of artists, activists and researchers along the Mississippi River via the online environment of the HKW installation “The Current” at: shape.anthropocene-curriculum.org – only online until Sun, Feb 28!

Instagram post 17907700738673541 “A river is always going somewhere, always coming from somewhere. As it passes, the sound we hear is the movement of water from before and after, the past and the future. Whatever present moment the river might invite us to, it is a thick moment, a moment in motion.”

Listening to the Mississippi: From 2013 when it began, to its first “listening action” as part of the “Mississippi. An Anthropocene River”, the Listening-project by Monica Moses Haller, Sebastian Müllauer, Michi Wiancko and Judd Greenstein has been trying to create conditions to perceive gaps between what literally cannot be seen and heard in nature, but which already and always exists in a place. What is needed for this is an imaginative listening. Is this kind of listening possible? 

🔗 Find out more about the project & use the rest of this weekend to explore the interactive online environment of the HKW exhibition “The Current” with studies, films and artworks along the Mississippi River via shape.anthropocene-curriculum.org!
