We bring DIY (do it yourself) and DIWO (do it with others) approaches as well as an open source based ‘hacker spirit’ into soil ecology. We invite you to reflect on current scientific discourses and critical societal challenges through hands-on tinkering and curiosity driven research.
We are building a network of soil enthusiasts for long-term collaborative research and invite YOU to join us. Read more on Mikrobiomik

Berlin, 01.-07. October 2018
Mini-residency: 01.-07. October 2018 Workshop: SUN 07.10.2018, 17:00
SUN 07.10.2018, 17:00 @ TOP project space, Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin (http://www.top-ev.de)
Hosted by TOP, the mini residence by Julian Chollet ends up with a workshop on soil: together with Mindaugas Gapsevicius and Juan Pablo Diaz, we invite you to explore the organic matter of the soil and processes including composting, and digesting. What is humus? What are excrements? What is the role of microbes in soil formation? Participants are invited to reflect on current scientific discourses and critical societal challenges through hands-on tinkering and curiosity-driven research.
Soil is bursting with life and can be vastly different from one square centimeter to the next. From plants, earthworms, insects, and fungi to invisible amoeba, nematodes, algae, and bacteria – each creature provides their own essential role in the soil ecosystem. The shared nature of the soil habitat manifests not only through the highly interconnected so-called “soil food web” – which is mainly driven by microbial metabolism – but also in regard to humans and their dependence on the productivity of edible plants.
HUMUS sapiens represents a compilation of soil explorations emerging from the networks of mikroBIOMIK, Hackteria, and Gasthaus – with the ambition to bring DIY (do-it-yourself) and DIWO (do-it-with-others) approaches as well as an open-source-based “hacker spirit” into soil ecology.
The residency and the workshop is kindly supported by Nordic culture point and TOP Association for the Promotion of Cultural Practice. Organized by Institutio Media.
