Enfleshed – Ecologies of Entities and Beings

Edited by Kristiina Koskentola and Marjolein van der Loo
Enfleshed brings together practitioners, thinkers, and artists from across Eurasia to collectively explore multispecies ecologies. The volume reflects anthrodecentric and embodied approaches to collaboration and knowledge production – processes that are always interwoven with a multitude of entities and actors.
