description

For its first individual pavilion, Lithuania has produced The Swamp, a pedagogical space and a platform for discussion, temporarily situated at the interstices of the ‘landed nations’. It will provide a (wet) land open for discussion, experimentation, and research on the emergent condition of post-nationalism. Its swampy conditions demonstrate many of the battlefields of postmodernity: conditions of hybridity, the idea of ‘nature,’ questions of human and nonhuman agency, strata of history, and of the possibility of a future. Rather than performing a draining criticality, it is instead collaborative and dangerously additive. The pavilion is the location for a Swamp School where workshops will be held on these and additional topics of immaterial materiality, such as Swamp Radio, new forms of cohabitation, commonism and symbio-poetics. Echoing the spatially dislocated sensations of pirate radio or the international abyss just outside of passport control, the Swamp School will take advantage of participants’ jetlagged sensorium to impress a pedagogical experience of fermentation, deep time, olfaction, fecundity, filtration, and, among other things, the future.
