Up to now, the field as a place of research has mainly been a playground for the sciences. To those without such clearly defined institutional affiliations, the field as a site for observation however has always been out of bounds – a restricted space, reinforcing political structures and social power relations. It is now urgent that we conceive new definitions and players for the field and bring previously restricted discourses to new places. »Dispatches from the Field« is exactly this proposal, to encounter the field as a social space in different guises. 

On June 7, Kula Kulturladen e.V. in Konstanz will be the site of the field. The one-day event showcases sonic encounters and wildlife excursion, presenting the experiences of artists and scientist in the field, from a sanctuary in Rajasthan to the laboratories in Konstanz. »Dispatches from the Field« will re-configure Kula Kulturladen e.V. into a laboratory, an open university, a research institute and most importantly a nightclub. It will become a space of dialogue for ecologists, scientists, artists, DJ’s – and you. 

The event is part of the art, science & business program of Akademie Schloss Solitude in cooperation with the Department for the Ecology of Animal Societies at the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior and Kulturladen Konstanz e.V. All formats will be held in English. Admission is free.

With among others: Hyeseon Jeong, Martyna Marciniak, Hemal Naik, Eduardo Noya Schreus, Yashas Shetty, Helene Sommer, Vivek Hari Sridhar, Seongmin Yuk
