Ultimology, or the study of endings 2016-2024
Part of a doctoral project
LUCA School of Art/ KU Leuven
Ghent, Belgium
Ultimology is a proposal for the study of endings as a real and urgent concern; it suggests through looking closely at things that are extinct, endangered, vulnerable or at risk in the present, we might learn new lessons of care and consideration, or at least understand how to better negotiate loss.
A doctoral project by Fiona Hallinan that builds on a collaboration with Kate Strain.
