Postcards From The Anthropocene Unsettling The Geopolitics Of Representation
|Benek Cincik ; Tiago Torres-Campos
Through collections of visual materials and theoretical explorations with critical positionings, this volume presents various responses to the geopolitical conditions of our tangential times. It expands on the Anthropocene theory by investigating its relations with the aesthetic concerns in contemporary representations. The assembled “postcards” raise questions about the ethical and political challenges of the dominant modes of knowledge production in technology and science, which are constituted through existing power relations, subject positions, and differences, and that perpetuate current inequalities. Recalibrate existing value systems and indicate alternatives.
