Livia Cahn, MA

IDK Doctoral Candidate


Livia studied anthropology at the University of Cambridge, and at the EHESS in Paris. She has explored the possibilities of ethnographic methods to address various nature-cultures by working through collaborative contexts, across disciplines and practices on urban ecologies, interspecies relations and lively soils, as a researcher, activist, and gardener. She has co-curated exhibitions and workshops, and co-authored Terres des Villes, Enquêtes potagères de Bruxelles aux premières saisons du 21e siècle (Éditions de l’Éclat, 2017) and a growing series of picture essays on soils, among others.
