“Mobile Soils explores the transformation of our bounds to the ground in the early 21st century through a range of personal reflections, in which authors revisit their practice in the light of earthly attachments and ecological pressure. It stems from a series of workshops organised in 2019 as part of the Baustelle und Botanic project”:

“Looking at the interconnection between architecture and memory, in parallel with the presence and perception of nature within the urban context, I have been developing the think tank "Baustelle und Botanik" since 2017, as part of the TETI group research agenda on nature and the city. TETI is an international interdisciplinary study group set on exploring the textures and experiences of trans-industriality. Nurturing historical awareness, promoting circulation and diversification, the group has played a large part in the attention I have been paying to the position of the artist or researcher as land surveyor.”
