Coven Intelligence Program: Revolutionary Ecologies of Work Between Plants and Machines

The Coven Intelligence Program (formerly APRIORI) is a techno-botanical coven that makes connections between the persecution of witches and other radical groups from early modernity to the present, the surveillance technologies continually employed against them, the destruction of multi-species commons, and the rise of racial, heteropatriarchal capitalism. To counter this ongoing destruction, the Coven Intelligence Program cultivates revolutionary ecologies between witches, plants, and machines. Learn more about the Coven Intelligence Program. https://covenintelligence.net/. In collaboration with efrén cruz cortés, and Suzanne Husky.
