GEFF2022 Special Event 2
Cultures of Extraction: A Roundtable

October 27, 3-4.15pm (CET), BuzzHouse

This roundtable brings together artists and researchers whose work engages with extraction. The invited panellists will discuss how the logic of extraction operates in various domains of human civilisation, including for example the cultural sector and global supply infrastructures. They will also address extractive logics in our collective relation to the Earth and animals, health, race, and global currency systems. We hope that the roundtable can generate a conversation with the audience and invite attendees to share their own experience of or perspective on extraction.

Speakers: Bogna Bochińska, Damian Borovsky, Olivia Brown, Erica Callegaro, Toni Pape (moderator), Gizem Şentürk

GEFF2022 Special Event 3
Animal Protection in the Media: A Panel Discussion

October 28, 4-5.30pm (CET), BuzzHouse

The growing attention for the protection of animals, often in relation to nature and the environment, is also apparent in the media – they literally ‘frame’ the theme. But how do people who work for animals in sectors like science and politics view these ‘frames’? Do the media really help put animals on the public agenda? Can films properly portray the relevant issues and pose the right questions in appropriate images? How do the panelists use the media to create awareness of animal lives, and what reactions do they get to their public appearances? And of course, what are their favorite films of GEFF2022’s Animal-Human Relations Program?

Participants: Leonie Cornips, Marjolein van Rooij, others to be announced
Moderator: Maarten Reesink (Centre for Animal-Human Studies NL, University of Amsterdam)
