Abstract

O livro discute e estimula reflexões de como as relações de consumo podem comprometer a qualidade de vida, a justiça social e a sobrevivência do planeta. Aborda os impactos socioambientais das ações do homem nas esferas da produção, circulação e consumo, alertando para a necessidade de se adotar um uso mais sustentável do meio ambiente. Nos vários textos constantes da obra, as cidades são vistas como materialidade das mudanças socioambientais, onde todas as relações sociais de produção devem ser enfocadas em sua totalidade. Entre os temas tratados, merecem destaque: a industrialização, o incentivo ao consumo e ao descarte descontrolado de materiais e as disparidades entre o superconsumo e o subconsumo, a dialética global/local, as alterações climáticas, o planejamento e as políticas públicas. Estas diferentes questões são analisadas sob perspectivas diversas, o que demonstra a amplitude da problemática da produção, circulação e consumo e seus impactos na atualidade.

[...] Este trabalho se circunscreve ao sistema capitalista de produção. Não ignoro, no entanto, que outros sistemas como o socialista, por exemplo - incorram em processo semelhante.

Abstract

The preternatural, as explored by these artists, disturb the ontological boundaries of art, nature and metaphysics. They exist within the folds of classificatory thresholds: both beyond and between nature and supernature; human and animal; vegetable and mineral; living and dead. The confusion between animate and inanimate is a primary concern, a surreality which unites with the preternatural’s love for reveling in the mysterious: bizarre fragments, unreadable words, objects of absurd scale, and distortions of the relativity of time and space flourish throughout this exhibition. Preternatural is the catalogue for a multi-site art exhibition (9 December 2011 through 17 February 2012, in Ottawa, Canada) that draws from the idea that art itself is a form of preternatural pursuit, in which the artists participating explore the bewildering condition of being in between the mundane and the marvelous in nature. It questions a world that understands itself as accessible, reachable, and ‘knowable’ and counters it with a consideration of this heterogenous proposition.

Abstract

The Petroleum Manga, first conceived of and rendered as 10-foot banners printed on Tyvek for gallery installation is now reproduced in book form. Originally, manga was used in Japanese to refer to whimsical drawings or picture books. Long before manga was a multi-billion-dollar-a-year comic book industry, there was Hokusai’s thirteen-volume manga, depicting everything from trees to demons, from squirrels to shingles. This was the work that inspired the form for Marina Zurkow’s own crazy amalgam depicting a taxonomy of products derived from petroleum.

Abstract

For too long, the Earth has been used to ground thought instead of bending it; such grounding leaves the planet as nothing but a stage for phenomenology, deconstruction, or other forms of anthropocentric philosophy. In far too much continental philosophy, the Earth is a cold, dead place enlivened only by human thought—either as a thing to be exploited, or as an object of nostalgia. Geophilosophy seeks instead to question the ground of thinking itself, the relation of the inorganic to the capacities and limits of thought. This book constructs an eclectic variant of geophilosophy through engagements with digging machines, nuclear waste, cyclones and volcanoes, giant worms, secret vessels, decay, subterranean cities, hell, demon souls, black suns, and xenoarcheaology, via continental theory (Nietzsche, Schelling, Deleuze, et alia) and various cultural objects such as horror films, videogames, and weird Lovecraftian fictions, with special attention to Speculative Realism and the work of Reza Negarestani. In a time where the earth as a whole is threatened by ecological collapse, On an Ungrounded Earth generates a perversely realist account of the earth as a dynamic engine materially invading and upsetting our attempts to reduce it to merely the ground beneath our feet.
