"Holotipus", vol. 4&5

Since its initial formulation and popularization in the public sphere, the Anthropocene thesis has triggered several critical debates across scientific disciplines and artistic practices, which have included non-anthropocentric and decolonial perspectives, critiques of species thinking and extractive economies, and insights from political ecology and the natural sciences. While scientific institutions have increasingly initiated collaborations with artists and designers, visual artists from different geographies and traditions have creatively engaged with the geological and planetary imaginaries mobilized by the ‘epoch of man’. They have done so by maintaining a critical relationship with the forms of knowledge reproduced by geoscientific research and communication.
