theOtherDada joins the inauguration of the Shanghai Project

We are very pleased to let you know that Adib Dada joined the inauguration of the Shanghai Project throughout roundtable discussions along Otobong Nkanga and other multidisciplinary teams.

The discussions explored Root Researcher systems that form the core of the Shanghai Project, with a presentation by three teams. Otobong Nkanga (“Landversation”), Zhang Haimeng (“Fast-Forward Future”) and Qiu Anxiong will present their teams, how they were assembled and the research trajectories that mandated the interdisciplinary skills and knowledge of their team members.  Each Root Researcher has been chosen from one of the five fundamental disciplinary frameworks, including Visual Art; Architecture, Design and Communication; Performance, Moving Image and Sound; Humanities and Social Sciences; and Science, Technology and Ecology.

Adib will join Otobong Nkanga’s team along Helena Ramos a cultural producer from Brazil, and Peter Webb an ecopsychologist from Brazil. They will work on an installation called “Landversation”.

Check out the images below from the installation. “Landversation”, or conversation about land, is animated by individuals who will talk about their projects and personal stories about their relation with the notion of “land” whether in their agricultural practices, legal activism or experiences with urban and artistic projects. It tackles the fields of LAYERING / urbanization / water / River / Biomimicry/ architecture / urban ecology / bioremediation.
