Instituting Ecologies: Fellowship Reader #2
Edited by Ing Lãce
19 x 13cm
How can contemporary art and its practitioners contribute to the current debates concerning the growth-oriented economy, as well as its impact on the natural world, social inequality and climate change? How can an ecological awareness be practiced through contemporary art and interdisciplinary projects? How can inherently human-made institutions be reimagined to include the rights of nature within their modus operandi? Are the divisions of nature and culture – enforced through modernity – still relevant for discussion? What might sustainability within exhibition making or instituting mean? Or is the preoccupation with ecology simply just another metaphor within our contemporary discourse?
