S.W.E.A.T. podcast featuring HYENAZ in conversations on Extraction
As artists and researchers, we are constantly exploring the connections between art, the environment, and labour rights. Interviews from our ongoing Extraction project were broadcast as part of Mad Kate’s S.W.E.A.T. podcast. In March 2023 we had the opportunity to interview Donato Laborante, who we met during our tour of the Murgia region of Italy […]

Sound in Stone: Field Research – Murgia, Italy
As winter waned in 2023 we embarked on a journey back to the Murgia region eager to deepen our exploration of stone as a conduit for sound and aliveness. This place is special to us, not only because of its arid hills and valleys, lined with tall and rattly Ferula Ferita shrubs, but also for…
Art and Extractivism Reading Group

Compendium of Tactics*

These practices are designed to upset, disrupt, and subvert extractivist or exploitative relationships which may otherwise occur during an artistic “exchange”. They have been compiled as result of research, conversations and experience gathered in…
