Abstract or Description

This contribution follows a path taken during a series of feminist reading & mushroom hunting walks first initiated by the authors in 2017 during a workers' strike at the University of Leeds (UK). It tests a premise that encounters with mycorrhiza - a symbiotic association between a fungus and a plant understood as partial, situated, embodied and entangled practice-in-motion - enables critical re-considerations of individual and collective relationships. We name this as 'the art of feminist un/learning' in order to highlight a creative practice oriented towards new pathways for working and living within, agains, and beyond educational and cultural institutions.
