In his long-term artistic project Theatrum Botanicum, Uriel Orlow considers plants as actors on a political stage: protagonists of colonial trade, flower diplomacy, or bio-piracy. As such, they serve as a prism through which environmental colonial history can be re-negotiated. Theatrum Botanicum can be read as an attempt to decolonize both, history and nature. And for decolonizing nature, it is crucial how plants are considered as acting and living beings. If they tell stories about colonialism, how are they brought to speak?

New Models speaks with Z, founder of the BLACK SOCIALISTS of AMERICA (BSA), an online channel turned IRL organization providing a forum and voice for black American leftists as well as education around the values of socialism (per Marx).

This item is publicly available as part of the Library Stack Public Branch at NN Contemporary Art.

The monuments their predecessors have left in Rome, on Easter Island, in Egypt, in Venice, littered like warning beacons elsewhere throughout the world, demonstrate such faith may not match reality. A rock thrown skyward must believe, at the top of its arc, fleetingly, that it is flying. When we admire our great cities, we find it hard to believe that they will ever ...

“Imagine a world that moves from an extractive to a distributive model – in which Amazon is owned by its sellers, Uber is owned by its drivers, and Facebook is owned by the people who create its content,” wrote Douglas Rushkoff, then an editor of The Financial Times in 2016. At this point, it is a little difficult. Could the world still hold tiny pockets of possibility for alternative, distributive models to germinate? In Estonia, the user-owned fintech Tuleva has identified one such hidey-hole of opportunity: the pensions market…
