Bureau of Linguistical Reality Field Study Power Inequality and the Anthropocene

April 30, 2016
4:40pm  -  4:55pm
High Bay Gallery, Great Hall — Level 2

Asking the questions of who has the agency to define our time—and the words we use to communicate our experience of it, the Bureau of Linguistical Reality creates a platform for people to identify emotions, experiences and phenomena around climate change and other Anthropogenic events for which they don’t yet have the language to describe and then together create new words to discuss these. The Bureau will host a conversation into the way language shapes our reality and power dynamics presenting our findings to date including neologisms created and a discussion around the greater experiences and phenomena these neologisms express.
