Symposium Producers-Parasites-Hosts (VU, 4 October)

Annabel Howland’s artistic research weaves a speculative web connecting art, science and finance.

These plastics are essentially indestructible; they do not biodegrade but break down into ever smaller pieces. At this interdisciplinary event, we explore microplastics from multiple angles.
