On June 18 Zheng Bo and Arjen Mulder met at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam for a talk about plants, plant rights and plant politics, and how to communicate with a species we humans depend upon. A registration of the event is available to watch on Other Futures Channel.
Lucia van den Brink was one of the twelve participants of the speculative fiction writing course Envisioning Other Futures, led by Rochita Ruiz.
In ‘Het randje van net genoeg’ (The very edge of just enough) the protagonist takes you on a path to the south after Climate Wars destroyed the world she knew. It's a story on capitalism. On group behaviour and individualism. On making choices and living by your own truth. And about the need for rabbits. Because sometimes a rabbit is all we have.
The story is in Dutch, Van den Brink’s native tongue.
