The John Michael Kohler Arts Center presents a conversation between artist-duo General Sisters (Dana Bishop-Root and Ginger Brooks Takahashi) and radical ecologist Nance Klehm.

The discussion will focus on the intersection of sustainable systems, composting toilets, the role of humanure in urban agriculture and humanure as a way to challenge our constructed distinction between waste and resource. Klehm and General Sisters will provide the context, science, and vision for a humanure system.

General Sisters is part of the Arts Center’s upcoming exhibition, Between You and Me, which examines how artists care for their communities. For General Sisters, the composting toilet demonstrates how shared resources and infrastructure (like water and waterways) make us interdependent: to care for these resources and systems is to care for your community.
