Along ecological lines : contemporary art and climate crisis

Drabble, Barnaby (ed. EDHEA – Ecole de design et haute école d’art du Valais, HES-SO // Haute école spécialisée de Suisse occidentale)

Along Ecological Lines is the second critical anthology in Gaia Project’s bestselling Elemental series. Bringing together essays, interviews and case studies it examines the work and ideas of a range of environmentally engaged artists working in Europe today. Providing readers an insight into practices that are dealing in different ways with the urgent and complex manifestations of climate change, this book addresses questions about how art can positively enter a discourse which is often dominated by political and scientific voices. Spanning seven chapters of writings by artists, activists and academics, this volume brings together various interconnected themes from self-sufficiency and civil disobedience, to inter-species justice, divestment and de-growth, to environmental ethics. The collected texts reveal a new immediacy amongst a growing network of practitioners collaborating across disciplines to bring creative, at times visionary methods to bear on environmental and ecological challenges.
