Info: Scrambled Ontologies: A Fabulation is a group exhibition based on critical engagement with current research on wildness from Jack Halberstam, Tavia Nyongo, and José Esteban Muñoz. In here, the term wildness seeks to capture new perspectives of polyphony and solidarity beyond capitalist, colonialist, and heteronormative structures. Wildness does not refer to a return of an alleged primitivism or a colonial imaginary, but rather, negotiates meanings and representations by proposing a disorder of things. The ideas around wildness are concerned with reclaiming a myriad of agencies and mean to enable reflections on aesthetic experience that encounter the unspeakable, wayward or unscripted actions, engagement in the margins or within unstable everyday realities.
