Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir Programme Director at the Department of Fine Art will participate in the symposium The return of materialism(s)? Matter between science, theory and art at the University of Iceland held by the centre of philosophy.

The symposium will take place on Friday April 13th at Lögberg at 13:00 - 16:00. Bryndís will speak at 13:15 under the title You must carry me now. On the schedule as well are Iris van der Tuin & Felicity Colman, Jan Overwijk as well as Sigríður Þorgeirsdóttir & Björn Þorsteinsson.

From Bryndís' summary:

In the project, the artists focused on endangered species still inhabiting the Grand Canyon. Because of a multitude of environmentally compromising human activities, the California Condor is now highly ‘managed’ by humans and for it conservation efforts constitute critical ‘life support’ systems.
