Posted on December 6, 2021

Marianne Hoffmeister Castro MFA ’22 is part of “Compost Reader,” the first published book of the editorial platform Cthulhu Books by the Institute of Postnatural Studies in Madrid. For this publication, Marianne presents fragments of her project “Ghostly Ecologies,” an experimental compound of essays, poetry and postnatural fables, based in the concept of tentacular writing.

Synopsis of “Compost Reader:”
Tongues as long as branches, cockroaches in a ‘hot story’, the resurgence of extinct plants, a prepatriarchal paranthropology, thinking with toxic plants from contemporary art, spiraling digestive ontologies, capitalist bruxism, a business school run by eukaryotes, a society in which we pay to eat celebrities, a prickly pear and 800 g of bonito tuna are some of the materials fermenting in this “Compost Reader.”
