between us and nature

a reading club

Over the last 5 years, our gathering at Zabriskie bookshop (and online) in Berlin is organically growing.

Each session of the ‘Between Us and Nature – A Reading Club’ is a mix of people from diverse backgrounds. These constellations are both live performance events enfolding while happening and a collective practice of transdiscipli-nary learning coshaped by each participant.

“forest trees and garden plants do not grow all by themselves, as white people think. our forest is vast and beautiful. but it is not like this without reason. its value of growth makes it so. this is what we call në rope. nothing would grow there without it. it comes and goes like a visitor, making plants grow everywhere on its path.”
