Episode five of the Garden Broadcast series looks at the inhabitation of the garden as a hospitable site for political refuge, dissent, or utopian experimentation.

In the late Renaissance, the aristocratic villa garden and the Dutch civic botanical garden offered asylum not only to victims of religious strife but also to intellectual casualties of the corrupting forces of cosmopolitan life, from Clusius to Lipsius. The Enlightenment-era theories of Rousseau reinforced the perception of the garden as a site where universal man could achieve his ultimate potential, a belief that carried into modern and contemporary landscape architecture through early 20th-century avant-garde art colonies, airy public parks, sanatoria, California cults, and the diffusion and imitation of Japanese landscape design as a stimulus for individual reflection. However, this lineage of ideological reinvention in nature positions the garden as a neutral and a-cultural host in the service of often transient human guests — a view in conflict with object-oriented ontology’s approach to ecology.

Today, the agency of nature as an abstract concept and the rights of specific natural forms like rivers or mountains are incorporated into proposals for new political ecosystems that incorporate the intelligences of non-human entities. This episode invites philosophers and designers to discuss how the relation between human and garden has shaped the political and intellectual thought, discourse, and revolution that have taken place within these spaces of domesticated nature.

Garden Broadcasts

The Garden Broadcasts weave together interviews, performances, field recordings and music selections to animate garden history as a living phenomenon. As part of the Thursday Night Live! programme and in collaboration with online radio Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee, visitors can take part as a live audience at the Garden Broadcasts recording studio in the programme Dissident Gardens or stream from further afield. More information and audio recordings can be found here.
