01. Federica Giardini
Federica Giardini inaugurates the podcast series “Air Columns” with an argument that, from The oblivion of the air by Luce Irigaray, leads to the privatization of air. From there, it is a short step between the air particulate level and the virus spread rate.
“Here I invent the term atmomensori (atmosurveyor), a calque from agrimensori of Luce Irigaray, with whom I trained, from the film Les arpenteurs by Michel Soutter. Farce (can of Artist’s shit by Manzoni) becomes tragedy: pure air for sale, according to M. D’Eramo in Dominio. On carbon credits and other inventions to profit from the unthinkable, I recently wrote Notes on the formation of value.”
