The General Ecology Podcast series is part of the Serpentine Galleries' long-term and ongoing “General Ecology” project which researches the notion of the ecological in an "expanded way", tackling complexity, more-than-humanism, climate justice and environmental balance. Founded in 2018, this project is the Serpentine’s think tank, combining disciplines of art, science and humanities by bringing together practitioners from all fields to reflect on the crises of the Anthropocene. By inviting artists, activists and practitioners across a network of individuals and organisations to think ecologically, the project aims to embed environmental methods throughout the Galleries’ outputs, organisational systems and networks. “General Ecology” is realised through this podcast series as well as publications, exhibitions, study programmes, radio, symposia, live events, and structural and systemic initiatives. The podcast series highlights topics of plant intelligence, planetary organisms, non-human cells, botany and eroticism and features an episode on Summit's cultural partner Julie’s Bicycle.
