This publication draws upon various impulses, practices, and methods of the Whole Life Academy, offering as such an insight into a multitude of collective research processes produced and developed within the Academy’s nomadic curriculum.

The publication is occupied as a space in which the different contributions sit in close proximity, approach one another, overlap, converse, dialogue, and fold their specificities into one another. The publication’s format invites you to encounter it as a multi-layered object, juxtapose its various components, and form your own constellations of text, image, and concept.

The interdisciplinary, international Whole Life Academy is an experimental and collaborative initiative for on-going research and reflection on archival positions, infrastructures, and materialities.
