Art after Nature
A new series I have been working on with co-editor, Giovanni Aloi, from University of Minnesota Press is finally live! More information available here. Listen to interviews with Art after Nature authors: Art and Posthumanism with Cary Wolfe (Art after Nature Part 1); Eco Soma with Petra Kuppers (Art after Nature 2)
About the series: At a time of unprecedented ecological crisis and cultural change, Art after Nature explores the epistemological questions that emerge from the expanding, environmental consciousness of the humanities. Authors featured in this series engage with the recent ontological turn, upending anthropocentrism, in order to grapple with the dark ecological fluidity of naturecultures. The anthropogenic lenses of inquiry emphasize an ethical focus, foregrounding the more-than-human politics of our era. Within this framework, art theory, practice, and criticism are reconfigured as intersecting platforms upon which current philosophical trajectories can be mapped. This series engages with the politics and contradictions of the Anthropocene in order to problematize recent and influential disciplines such as animal studies, posthumanism, and speculative realism, through art writing and art making. Books published in Art after Nature foster true multidisciplinarity, accessibility, and diversity. Each volume aims to provide readers with the opportunity to creatively engage with new and alternative discourses at the intersection of art, science, and philosophy.
