The relationship between technology and nature is mostly based on a logic of extraction facilitated by colonial juridical mechanisms and late capitalism. Getting Wet will consist of talks and film screenings around water as an element but also as an idea that will make our categories of thought erode and reconfigure our planetary relationships. The event aims at rethinking the notion of technology, by shifting from a mere apprehension of nature toward a deep attention to it by looking at nonhuman technologies and water as knowledge. Water is therefore understood as a mechanism that works its way through the tiniest of cracks, slowly but persistently undermining exploitative systems.
