"Addressing the current upswing of humanities-based, scientific and environmental arts and attention in relation to the recent proposition that we have entered a new human-driven epoch called the Anthropocene, this new book by cultural critic and art historian T.J. Demos presents a critical overview of that thesis, and its limitations in conceptualisation and in practice.
For the event, Demos will be in discussion with Nabil Ahmed, an artist and researcher working on environmental violence and forensic architecture, and Ros Gray, Senior Lecturer in Fine Art, Critical Studies in the Art Department at Goldsmiths, University of London."
Against the Anthropocene: Visual Culture and Environment Today is published by Sternberg Press.
