project and publication exploring the aesthetics, poetics and ecologies of the micro.

Since 2019, Microhabitable has researched across disciplines, considering questions of scale, habitability and self-organisation in a more than-human framework. A collaboration between INLAND-Campo Adentro, Matadero Madrid and Serpentine’s General Ecology initiative, Microhabitable invites methodologies and strategies from anthropology, politics and science, to offer insights into what can be shared across discourses that deal with the microscopic, the micropolitical and the microeconomic.

After publishing the Spanish-language edition of the book in 2019, we are excited to announce the 2023 publication of Microhabitable in English. A reader based on the project’s outcomes, Microhabitable features contributions from physicist Karen Barad, anthropologist Marisol de la Cadena, curator Elvira Dyangani Ose, architect Yona Friedman, biologist Scott F. Gilbert, artist Elaine Gan, anthropologist Elisabeth Povinelli, writer and editor Filipa Ramos, artist Jenna Sutela, anthropologist Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing, and writer Elvia Wilk. Published by Koenig Books, Microhabitable is edited by Fernando García Dory and Lucia Pietroiusti.
