With The Understory of the Understory  we'll encounter a multispecies universe where fungi, lichens and mycellium networks, as well as invertebrates, bacteria, plant roots and the soil itself come together to collaborate, communicate, constitute one another and jointly edify architectures. Anthropologists, artists, foragers, musicians, mycologists and scientists will tell and share the lessons of this density teeming with life towards a post-anthropentric world-making. With Andrew AdamatzkyLynne BoddySimone KotvaMerlin Sheldrake and many more to be announced.
