Against the Anthropocene

Visual Culture and Envoriment today
€ 18.60

Addressing the current upswing of attention in the sciences, arts, and humanities to the proposal that we are in a human-driven epoch called the Anthropocene, this book critically surveys that thesis and points to its limitations.

Art historian T. J. Demos analyzes contemporary visual culture—popular science websites, remote sensing and SatNav imagery, eco-activist mobilizations, and experimental artistic projects—to consider how the term works ideologically, proposing more than merely a description of objective geological periodization.
