Such tragic events as war might deprive people of their agency, or at least impugn this agency relegating them to the status of an object. The "Non-human agents during the war" focuses on how non-human agents, such as plants, animals, landscapes, and houses, are included in a large political context forcibly filled with ideological content. The event also stresses on how those being devoid of agency can reform it in a collective grassroots form by the means of contemporary art.
