Reel Nature Speculative Gardens of Eden Małgorzata Sugiera Contemporary art has already confirmed that it offers a unique opportunity to unmoor anthropocentric certainties within productive, experimental, and inclu- sive spaces, able to transcend medial and disciplinary boundaries. Nonetheless, as rightly emphasized by T. J. Demos in Against the Anthropocene (2017), the extended spatial and temporal scales of geology specific to the new era of Man far exceed human comprehension. As such, they present a major challenge to established representational systems

APPROPRIATION OF NATURE, THE URBAN AND URBAN NATURE(S) Appropriation of nature, the urban and urban nature(s) Figure 5: Prati della fiera. A grassfield to enable activities. Picture credit: Stellepolari Picture Credit: Stellepolari Urban Natures of Appropriation INTERVIEW WITH MATTHEW GANDY BY MATHILDA ROSENGREN The relatively obsolete idea of the mastering of “Nature” by “Man” – that is, its appropriation – is an undertaking that, nevertheless, runs deep into the core of European human history. And the modern city has

9. Reconstructing Native Nature Erosion control remains a central goal of Coast Care. However, many projects increasingly focus on coastal protection in a different sense: the protection, preservation and reconstruction of native coastal nature. The stronger emphasis on nature protection goes hand in hand with the extension of restoration projects beyond the immediate foredune areas targeted in early erosion control attempts. As mentioned earlier, the Coast Care Bay of Plenty programme is defined around four objectives: participation, education

The Neoliberalization of Nature An Ecocritical Examination of the Discourse of Wildlife Conservation RICHARD J.

Uninvited Collaborations with Nature Nina Katchadourian Renovated Mushroom (Tip-Top Tire Rubber Patch Kit) Cibachrome, 27.25 x 39.5 inches, 1998 For many years, I‘ve made works that I loosely think of as uninvited collabora- tions with nature.“ The Mended Spiderwebs series came about during a six-week period in June and July in 1998 which I spent on a small Finnish island called Pörtö. In the forest and around the house where I was living, I searched for broken spiderwebs which I repaired using red sewing thread. All of the patches were made by inserting

47 In awe of nature „[T]he sublime is as American as apple pie …“1 Der Fluchtpunkt der Suche, auf die George Kuchar sich in den Weather Diaries begibt, ist das Erhabene. Das Verlangen nach der zerstöreri- schen, die Vorstellungskraft sprengenden Wucht des Tornados, nach Ehrfurcht gebietenden Superzellengewittern, Hagelstürmen und Wol- kenbrüchen bestimmt die Videoserie. Es ist die romantische Sehnsucht nach dem Erschaudern vor der unfassbaren Kraft der Natur. Scott MacDonald stellt diese Sehnsucht in seinem Text zu WEATHER DIARY 1, From the Sublime to the

»Retournons à la nature« Claude Lévi-Strauss und das Verschwinden des Menschen Heike Kämpf Claude Lévi-Strauss hat in seinen Schriften die zentrale Stellung des Men- schen in philosophischen, wissenschaftlichen und ethischen Diskursen ve- hement kritisiert. Er versucht nicht nur, den Menschen vom Zentrum dieser Diskurse in die Peripherie zu drängen, sondern er möchte zum Verschwinden des Menschen beitragen. Dies gelingt ihm in dreifacher Hinsicht: Indem er eine große anonyme Rationalität sichtbar macht, die alles Seiende organisiert, ist der Mensch als

Foundational Dynamics of Animate Nature MAXINE SHEETS-JOHNSTONE Interpersonal relationships begin in infancy. They begin not verbally, but non-verbally in the silence of movement, a silence that is dynamic through and through. To understand the foundations of intercorporeity is thus to go back to those dynamics and ascertain their nature. We may inquire, on the basis of that foundation, whether – and if so, how – those dynamics form the backbone of what is commonly referred to as “intersubjectivity,” or in broad terms, our interpersonal
