Postcards from the Anthropocene [Exhibition] - Edinburgh, 22-24 June

14. June 2017

An image of an ongoing project on reservoir islands will be shown in the exhibition parallel to the conference Postcards from the Anthropocene: Unsettling the politics of representation, to be held in Edinburgh the days 22-24 June.

From the website of the symposium: "This symposium proposes to explore this through the motif of 'Postcards from the Anthropocene'. The postcards that we imagine are documentary space-time snapshots, which convey complex assemblages of dynamic, non-linear, unpredictable, ad-hoc networks between interdependent and trans-scalar actants. They may raise questions about the ethical and political challenges of the dominant modes of technoscientific production in the Anthropocene, modes that are constituted through existing power relationships, subject positions, differences and inequalities. On the other hand, they might open up new streams of speculative and creative geopolitical imaginaries and forms of collective subjectivities that recalibrate existing value systems and indicate alternatives."
