― Abbie Hoffman, Steal This Book

______________________

🔗alike𝌡 page is good, but lacking.
:
    * It needs to merge with 🔗intersub𝌡 and even 🔗postmarket𝌡.
    * Develop "Call-out culture" for anyone involved with, based on distinct re-processed set of values.

Who are really our closest organisations? Are we comrades, or are we "friends"?

THEORY: Post-Postmodernist Art | PC + LIVE

Beyond classic-mimetic, modernist, and postmodernist.
Contemporary art is most often whimsical, out-of-context, inconsequential, and not truly engaging the "topics of our time".

Considering the present - environmental, political, ... - situation, this is aesthetically grotesque.

Assemble manifesto and practices:
    * Establish measure of Urgency, and a consequent ethics-politics-aesthetics. 
    * Call-out all the bullshitt.
    * New curatorial strategies - what is Totalist curation?
    * [...]

LAND: Birds and Cats | PC + LANZA

#ecology #ornitology

Birds are amazing, but often highly troubled.
"Feral cats kill an estimated 480 million birds in the US each year"

There are existing organisations working with that in Lanzarote:
    * WWF
    * Punctum photographers
    * Island  Ecology  and  Evolution  Research  Group  (IPNA,  CSIC)
    * Archipelago Chinijo
    * [...]

Domestic and semi-wild cats are a direct threat to birds.

* What is the population, and other factors that can be (or are) traced?
* What is the numeric scale of the problem?
    * https://abcbirds.org/program/cats-indoors/cats-and-birds/ 
* What can be done to counter this?
* Are there laws in place, are they respected?
* What is the state of protected areas?
* The cost of pets and pet food:

THEORY | Food Systems & Breadbasket failures

http://www.bu.edu/pardee/the-risks-of-multiple-breadbasket-failures-in-the-21st-century-a-science-research-agenda/
"""According to the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization (Statistics Division 2016), a relatively small area of the world, 23 percent of total cropland, accounts for a large proportion of total global cereal production, with most of the area devoted to three major cereal crops: maize (70.3 percent), wheat (69.3 percent), and rice (84.5 percent)."""

* What would a MBBF (Multi Breadbasket Failure) look like?

* What would be the dramaturgy of such a collapse?:
    How long into the Sowing-to-Harvest timeline would we realize this?
    How would panic buying play out?
