Contemporary Art and the Politics of Ecology

Featuring Peter Mörtenböck (on the World of Matter project) and Nabil Ahmed (on Radical Meteorology) this discussion departs from the concerns of the current special issue of Third Text, guest-edited by TJ Demos and dedicated to the intersection of art criticism, politico-ecological theory, environmental activism, and postcolonial globalisation.

Introduced and chaired by Demos, the discussion will address new aesthetic strategies through which ecological emergencies—including the multifaceted crisis of climate-change - have found resonance and response in artistic practice and more broadly in visual culture
