The Planetary Garden. Cultivating Coexistence

Gardens are places where diverse forms of life mix and adapt to co-exist. They allow for cross-pollination based on encounter. In 1997, French Botanist Gilles Clément described the world as a “planetary garden” with humanity in charge of being its gardener. Twenty years later, Manifesta 12 Palermo revisits the metaphor of the “garden”, not as a space for humans to take control, but rather as a site where “gardeners” recognise their dependency on other species, and respond to climate, time, or an array of social factors, in a shared responsibility.

“The Planetary Garden. Cultivating Coexistence” hosts 3 main sections, each touching on key topics of the concept: Garden of Flows, Out of Control Room, City on Stage.
