Humanity’s desire to exert control over its environment is perhaps best seen from above. The hinterland exhibits an intricate tessellation of productive landscapes. Within these striking images of competing lines and fields, we bear witness to the constant struggle between urbanization and food production. What does it mean today to live off the land? “Entangled Ecologies” aims to offer a prism through which to view the complex (entangled) relations between food, design, landscape, and infrastructure across various geographies.

QANAT is a long-term collaborative exploration of the politics and poetics of water in Marrakech and beyond. A collective effort to reflect and act upon the multiple contextual understandings and forms of (re)production of the commons. QANAT is a multi-disciplinary collective that combines public programs, research residencies, and publications. QANAT aims to create spaces in which voices from Marrakech can speculate on new collective imaginaries to design new spatial and epistemological configurations for the city, and develop archives of reflections and actions to nourish debates across dispersed localities.
