The Shape of aCircle in the Mind of a Fish is an ongoing research, publication and festival series on consciousness and intelligence across life forms, dedicated to unpicking those assumptions we make about the centrality and exceptionalism of humanity.

With The Understory of the Understory, we go to that place which is simultaneously ground, land, soil and Earth, that is to say, the place where diverse species come together, collaborate, communicate and constitute one another but also where complex systems of redistribution of toxicity, logics of extraction and geopolitics meet.
The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish is curated by Lucia Pietroiusti (Curator, General Ecology, Serpentine Galleries), Filipa Ramos, writer, animal whisperer with Kostas Stasinopoulos (Assistant Curator, Live Programmes, Serpentine Galleries).
Livestream BSL will run throughout the festival and will be made available afterwards for the archive
General Ecology is the Serpentine’s long-term and ongoing project researching complexity, more-than-humanism, climate justice and environmental balance. Founded in 2018, General Ecology is a strategic effort to embed environmental subjects and methods throughout the Galleries’ outputs, structures and networks. General Ecology concerns itself simultaneously with environmental and organisational ecologies.
