Place is not just the surface upon which life happens, but an ongoing state created by process and relations (Massey 1994, 2005; Rose 1993); places are practices (Dehyle 2009). In Indigneous studies, Land refers not only to soil, but to water, air, animals, and most importantly, the relations between them, as Land constitutes the life of the collective  (Bang 2014). Land refers not only to the material aspects of Landscape, but also “to its spiritual, emotional, and intellectual aspects” (Cajete 2000; Styres & Zinga 2012; Tuck 2015 and many others).

Ruin Porn: Essays on the Obsession with Decay

Type: 
Call for Papers
Date: 
November 1, 2016
Subject Fields: 
Architecture and Architectural History, Art, Art History & Visual Studies, Contemporary History, Environmental History / Studies, Urban History / Studies

The newly-coined term ‘ruin porn’ provokes both obsession and criticism; signalling the eventual decay to which we will all invariably succumb, contemporary ruins inspire fascination and fear, a furious denial of our collective immortality and a wary flirtation with death. Contemporary ruins such as those found in Detroit and Chernobyl attract thousands of ‘ruin tourists’ or ‘ruin photographers’, many of whom attempt to engage on a meaningful level with the existential threat that these sights arouse.
