Current. Currencies - LINA round table discussion
“Current.Currencies” concerns water, money and options of living in between. The talk explores how we access and consume nature in a man-made environment, with a particular focus on bodies of water and the politics surrounding their use. Presenters from various professional and cultural backgrounds - LINA fellows, along with Georgian professionals - meditate on the critical approaches to sustainability solutions when planning and consuming landscapes that incorporate water resources; discuss the temporary and permanent nature of our interventions and how climate and natural forces shape our lives.
