Preceding our Assemblage #6 on Donna Haraway and her work/writing, XenoEntities Network (XEN) would like to gather friends to watch the screening of the biopic Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival by Fabrizio Terranova. Due to the popularity of the first screening, XEN re-screened Story Telling for Earthly Survival twice more at Spektrum and once at Gropius Bau as part of the exhibition Welt ohne Außen.

Donna Haraway is a gifted storyteller who paints a rebellious and hopeful universe teeming with critters and trans species, in an era of disasters. Brussels filmmaker Fabrizio Terranova visited Donna Haraway at her home in California, living with her – almost literally – for a few weeks, and there produced a quirky film portrait. Terranova allowed Haraway to speak in her own environment, using attractive staging that emphasised the playful, cerebral sensitivity of the scientist. The result is a rare, candid, intellectual portrait of a highly original thinker. 

Program curated by Lou Drago, Pedro Marum and Zander Porter.
