Free Jazz IV. Geomancers

Since ancient times the divinatory art of geomancy , literally “foresight by earth”, has been employed to decode signs of distress in the world. Today, how do we relate to the state of the planet, and situate ourselves within the complex entanglements of progress and exploitation that continue depleting human and natural resources? The acceleration of environmental crises and ecosystem degradation are at the forefront of critical art practices. Many artists explore modes of ‘environmental tuning’ to question anthropocentric ways of inhabiting the planet.

With works ranging from virtual reality to film, performance, and sound, Free Jazz IV. Geomancers presents significant artistic practices from across the globe. The artists share an understanding of the world as a vulnerable yet resilient mesh of coexistences, correlations, and cocreations. Straddling ecopoetics and ecocriticism, these contemporary geomancers speak about ecological interconnectedness and invite us to think critically about our relationship with our planet.
