We live in a time of social, economic and ecological unravelling. All around us are signs that our whole way of living is already passing into history.- Uncivilisation, The Dark Mountain Manifesto.
The Dark Mountain Project is ‘a new cultural movement for an age of global disruption.’ It aims to ‘question the stories that underpin our failing civilisation, to craft new ones for the age ahead and to write clearly and honestly about our true place in the world.’ Do It With Others (DIWO) at the Dark Mountainis a cultural collaboration for this age. “Uncivilisation,” the Dark Mountain Manifesto, calls for a cultural response to our current predicament. Its challenge is offered to network-minded artists, technologists, writers and activists as a provocation – to work together to re-envision the narratives and infrastructures that govern our relationships with the natural world, and how they might be unravelled and rewoven to reconfigure our place in it. As “Uncivilisation” concludes, ‘The end of the world as we know it is not the end of the world full stop.’
Artists, technologists, writers, activists and all other living beings are invited to correspond with each other across physical and digital mail networks. Transmissions and missives may take the form of texts, images, sound, net movies, objects, software programmes and instructions and will be assembled for an exhibition of all submissions offering new myths and maps for future uncivilisation at HTTP Gallery.
