Donna Haraway Circles 2021

Artist: Donna Haraway

No other contemporary thinker has more forcefully and implacably pursued an understanding of humanity, its history, present and prospects with as much radical appreciation for its complexity, interdependence and incompleteness. From the canonic Cyborg Manifesto proposing a revolutionarily feminist understanding of pervasive technology, Haraway’s social(ist) commitments have broadened to embrace the beings entire biome. Her thinking carefully and compellingly weaves scientific insights with interpretations of ancient philosophy, cutting analyses of contemporary techno-industry with rich accounts of the lives of the critters of the earth, transversal accounts where nothing is fully autonomous, least of all anthropos, and all transfused by the legacy of technology.

In this series, following the structure initiated for the Spinoza Circles series, we will read Donna Haraway together, opening up her dense, multi-dimensional and often prsimatic language to explore their relevance for the conditions we experience today. These readings will be accompanied by readings of other thinkers from today and from the past who have engaged in the complexity and enmeshedness of the technological condition of their times with Harawayan feeling for exigency in difficulty.
