Transpose is an ongoing project that explores cross-hemispherical relations with regard to different tensions: the kinship, insertion, farming and impact of salmon; the anthropocentric management and manipulation of living marine resources, and the coexistence and disappearance of indigenous knowledge, from origin to destination in the contemporary context.
Its main objective is to provide a reflection on these issues through a series of artworks and an interdisciplinary debate, aiming to reach local, artistic, philosophical, scientific and indigenous communities in Nordic countries, Germany, Canada and Chile.
