With this two-day workshop we bring together local and international actors researching electronic waste, its circulations, transformations, and impacts for human and non-human beings. We are particularly interested in the transmedia dimensions of aesthetic and interdisciplinary scientific research and its impact for everyday life.

What kind of practices might provide us with a critical take on waste’s world-making?
