The book Let’s Become Fungal! Mycelium Teachings and the Arts takes its inspiration from the world of art and mycology and shares innovative practices from Latin America and the Caribbean that are rooted in behaviours of mycelium: multispecies collaboration, symbiosis, alliances, non-monetary resource exchange, decentralisation, bottom-up methods and mutual dependency. Yet Let’s Become Fungal! is more than a book. It’s a methodology that can be activated in communities, networks, movements and organisations.
Yasmine Ostendorf-Rodríguez works as curator and researcher on art and ecology, and is based in Mexico-City. She founded and directed many international initiatives at the intersection of art and ecology, including the Green Art Lab Alliance (Asia, Latin America and Europe) and the Nature Research Department, the Van Eyck Food Lab, and the Future Materials Bank at the Jan van Eyck Academie (Netherlands). Author Yasmine Ostendorf-Rodríguez will be present at this event to tell everything about the book and programme of workshops, activities and research related to this title.
