Introducing the 221A Fellows

Introducing the 221A Fellows

221A invites you to meet its 2021 Fellows DOMA (Kiev/Paris), Christina Battle (Edmonton/Amiskwaciy Wâskahikan ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᕀ ᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ) and Zasha Colah (Bombay/Turin) at a livestream event, where they will present their research projects and methodologies.

While each Fellow varies in their approach and outcome, together the Fellows carry forward progressive initiatives that realign our relationships to land and territory. The nonprofit organization DOMA develops a cooperative housing digital platform which reveals how we could learn to live more in common in the city. Artist Christina Battle investigates strategies of ‘spread’ enacted by plants, fungi and digital communities, which could reshape global and local economies. And, Curator Zasha Colah is learning from disobedient territories and the ways we can preserve their bioregional integrity and the cultural heritage born from it, which has been and continues to be forcefully disappeared.
