abstract

Learning to acknowledge water as the interconnecting element of a dense ecosystem such as Venice and its lagoon marked an epistemological turn for the Author. Which language is being used – or silenced – to describe the rapidly shifting climatic conditions of the Mediterranean basin? In this article, Casavecchia retraces her steps as curator of the 2021‑23 fellowship programme The Current III, titled Thus Waves Come in Pairs (after Etel Adnan), promoted by TBA21-Academy. ‘Thinking with waves’ means questioning our apparatuses of knowledge, and activating transdisciplinary processes of exchange, choral mappings and pedagogies of relation.
