Common Survival is a multi-platform publication curated by the Institute of Queer Ecology (IQECO). Guided by queer and feminist theory and decolonial thinking, IQECO aims to nurture a new environmental paradigm based on the concepts of interconnectivity and inseparability. Their mission is to create an expanded understanding of Queer Community that includes nonhuman kin and prioritizes anyone subjugated, regardless of race, class, nationality, ability, income level, sexuality, gender or species. Their programming is interdisciplinary and revolves around migratory exhibitions, public programs, and publications (online and IRL).

Common Survival builds upon IQECO’s work imagining and creating alternative, utopian, non-human centered structures for collaboration and artistic research. The publication is the result of an international open call initiated by IQECO where, in the wake of the Trump administration’s destructive policies, participants were asked to respond to the question “How do we survive?” Common Survival includes contributions from forty artists, collectives, writers and activist groups. The projects appear as texts, zines, screen prints, photographs, sculptural objects, poems, video, audio recordings and other hybridized modes of research display. The show includes work by Molly Adams, Nicolas Baird, Amanda Baum & Rose Leahy, Haley Bueschlen, Angela Chan / algaela, Sabeen Chaudhry, Allyson Church & Greta Skagerlind, Lucy Cleek, Tiger Dingsun, Charlie Ehrenfried, Andil Gosine, Ryan Hammond, Quinn Harrelson, Emily Harter, Invisible Labor, Emily Jones, David Kim, Les U. Knight, Estraven Lupino-Smith, Tim Mann, Marius Mason, Lee Pivnik, Plasticity (Gabriele Leo & Grazia Mappa), POSADAS (Pablo Herza & Ignacio Hernández Murillo), Queer EcoJustice Project, Catriona Sandilands, Micah Schippa, Jack Schneider, Pinar Ateş Sinopoulos-Lloyd, Michelle Site, Corinne Teed, Andrea Tirrell, Rachel Weaver – Weaver Zines, Antonia Wright, Virtuellestheater, Edgar Xochitl, Agustine Zegers, Luis Angel Zepeda
