As part of Het Nieuwe Instituut’s research on burn-out and exhausted bodies, this series investigates how voice, oral histories, and collective, embodied listening, could be deployed as a counterbalance of the pervasiveness of the image and the growing pressure to put bodies on display. For this first event, Professor of anthropology Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing read, by means of an audio piece, her work The Mushroom at the End of the World.

Life Hacks is part of Het Nieuwe Instituut’s fellowship program around the theme of BURN-OUT.
