Digital Event Series "Brazil in Multiple Crisis Mode"
Location: Online via Zoom
Pesticides offer “food for thought” in understanding various dimensions of food inequalities: environmental chemical contamination and health problems affecting farm workers and nearby communities, environmental racism, the loss of biodiversity, and the contribution to climate change through fossil-fuel-based chemicals. Struggles around pesticides are characterized by knowledge asymmetries vis-à-vis- its safety and gendered politicisation, as women usually assume the burden to care for the sick and fight contamination. Global inequalities are expressed in the fact that most of the hazardous pesticides are prohibited in its producing countries but sold in developing ones. This workshop will discuss research findings of Larissa Bombardi, Renato Balbim and Renata Motta. We will examine the possibilities of interdisciplinary research on pesticides and beyond.

Soil is an Inscribed Body. On Sovereignty and Agropoetics is a project examining both the anti-colonial struggles of the past and the current land conflicts across the world to resist the invasiveness of neo-agro-colonialism and its extractivist logic. It germinates through a series of readings, interventions and workshops, and materialises in an exhibition (30.08.–06.10.2019) and a performance/discursive programme at SAVVY Contemporary (13/09/–15/09/2019). The project seeks dispersed and yet networked moments of cross-pollination between artistic strategies and agroecological initiatives from molecular to geopolitical scales. Professor Motta will also take part in this event on saturday 14/09/2019, contributing to a conversation with Paula Gioia, Alex Ungprateeb Flynn, and Barbara Marcel on the topic "Women in Movement / the Patriarchy of Land. On agrarian movements and their internal struggles "
