Beneath the tree there is hope of a breeze, beneath the tree there is hope for our transformation, any form of transformation. For the event, the tree at Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan is invoked to become a site of transformation.
A selection of texts on the post-human predicament will be broadcast on radio. These texts inquire what the unit of common reference is for humans to non-human inhabitants of this planet. The gathering of people under the tree at Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan will witness it becoming something outside our empirical knowledge of a tree. The tree will be transformed into a functioning antenna for radio reception and will invite visitors under its shade to introspect on their desire for personal transformation.
Apart from being aired‚ through the tree, the broadcast can also be tuned in to from various locations and will create‚ incidents for people to gather and imagine a site of transformation.
