‘The Midden’ explores the roles of art, fiction, and philosophy in relation to the future. More specifically, it asks what post-fossil art and society might look like. In discussing the methods and instruments deployed by contemporary artists to address ecologies and ecological issues, including engagements with laboratories, museums, and cartography, it promotes an examination of the themes of binaries, entanglement, and post-sustainability. The book draws on the Frontiers in Retreat project, for which art research was carried out over a five-year period by 25 artists at sites throughout Europe. With contributions by Jussi Parikka, Emmi Itäranta, Antti Salminen, Taru Elfving, and others.
