Read Thread is an artist book by Cecilia Vicuna, a writer and visual artist, that invites us to follow the thread beyond the western linear idea of time towards an endless movement of celestial patterns and its reflection in the human and landscape body. Vicuna, who left Chile 1973 during the dictatorship first for London, lived then in Bogota and after in New York, refers back to different indigenous concepts and techniques, which she poetically and politically interprets and places in tension with the current ecological and economical disaster.

The catalogue Traces documents the oeuvre of Cuban-born American artist Ana Mendieta (1948 – 1985). In her works she takes agency for and ownership over her body and creates often ephemeral works for which she almost exclusively used natural materials. The female body and the question of belonging are standing in the center of her practice. Mendieta realized many of her performances in nature, which she then documented on film – photographic and moving images. Poetically she expresses in her drawings, sculptures and performances an idea of an inseparable relationship between earth and humanity.

Jill Casid is a historian, theorist and practising artist based in the US. This study draws on an extraordinary range of resources for cultural criticism to explore colonial landscapes in the eighteenth century and their legacy today. In tracing the language and visual culture of plants and horticulture from literature, botanical illustration, garden design, and written archives she considers associations between colonial landscapes and heteronormativity. Casid gathers together and multiplies feminist, queer and postcolonial readings of concepts such as hybridity, productivity, fertility, rootedness, and displacement.
