Planetary coexistence

gnration (Sala multiusos)

Free admission
Session in French with simultaneous translation

Moderation: Liliana Coutinho

How can we think about the simultaneity of times, the coexistence of the human and the non-human and the plurality of political imaginaries? And in a mode that transcends the circumstances of historical linearity and approaches technology in a way that fully embraces all these issues. Sénamé Koffi Agbodjinou, a Togolese tech activist and thinker, explores these questions. An architect and anthropologist by training and praxis, he is a promoter of social action, diverse artistic projects and networks of collective technological literacy and practice, through the HubCity/WoeLabs hub, which aims to promote equity in the use of digital media.

Sénamé Koffi Agbodjinou is a thinker, author, tech activist, and social entrepreneur. With a background in industrial design, architecture, and anthropology, he curates exhibitions and gives lectures and workshops around the world. He co-founded L’Africaine d’architecture, a collaborative platform for experimentation and research on African architecture and urbanism, and HubCity/WoeLabs, a network of Togolese technology hubs that aim to promote equity in the face of the digital revolution. Agbodjinou works with concepts that incorporate indigenous elements into modern design, which he then implements at the product, building, and urban planning levels. His work develops alternative visions around issues of holistic architecture, primitive computationalities, democracy in technology, and urban sustainability.
