Liquid Archives Liquid Futures: Representing the Climate in Transition Times explores new approaches to representing climate change and climate justice in contemporary art.
Water is becoming an ever more important medium of concern in our globalized world — increasing fights over water rights, changing storm patterns, melting polar regions, sea level rise, weather engineering projects, and ocean territorialization. As these radical changes are happening in the hydrosphere, water is also becoming an ever more important medium of imaginative resistance for artists. The book describes the emergence of creative practices that focus on the sustaining, connecting, and regenerative capacity of water. It looks at recent art and design practices through recent feminist, de-colonial, and ecological philosophies toward an understanding of water's capacity to expand our perceptions of relation, reciprocity, and responsibility.
Look to water. Learn from water.
