From March through April 2021 together with Stephan Harding, Freya Mathews and Peter Reason, Andreas taught a 24-participants course at Schumacher College, UK. They focused on practices of communicating with the non-human beings of the earth, in this case rivers. There will be offspring projects from this and possibilities to explore co-creative spaces together with non-human persons.
Together with the student/teacher team of the Berlin university of the arts (UdK) Andreas is co-organising a lecture series on a radical perspective shift on the climate emergency, with a particular focus on post-dualistic views and the perspective from the arts and creation. External participants welcome (contact via the lecture’s website).
