We are pleased to announce the release of a book that we’ve been anticipating —  Art in the Anthropocene: Encounters Among Aesthetics, Politics, Environments and Epistemologies edited by Heather Davis and Etienne Turpin.

This timely collection takes “as its premise that the proposed epoch of the Anthropocene is necessarily an aesthetic event.” Its contributors explore “the relationship between contemporary art and knowledge production in an era of ecological crisis” and the volume includes a “multitude of disciplinary conversations, drawing together artists, curators, scientists, theorists and activists to address the geological reformation of the human species.”

The book is part of the Critical Climate Change series published by Open Humanities Press.

All are welcome to download the book or purchase print copies. Many thanks to Heather and Etienne for including our work.
