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 looks at recent art and design practices through feminist, de-colonial, and ecological philosophies. Moving toward an understanding of water's capacity to expand our perceptions of relation, reciprocity, and responsibility art and design can offer an array of creative community approaches to the most important water debates of the 21st century.
