Bringing together contributions by artists, writers and theorists, Fieldwork for Future Ecologies addresses the role that art practice and art-based research plays in expanding notions of fieldwork. At once a handbook for research and practice and a philosophical speculation, this book offers the unique opportunity to explore ways of working within vastly diverse climates and terrains using image, sound, movement and other sensing technologies. It also offers more creative and speculative interventions into the idea and location of the ‘field’ itself.

Focusing on a range of projects from across different geographic locations and situations, the book highlights the crucial contribution that art can make to environmental and climate studies offering a valuable intervention into current discussions of artistic practice and research. Fieldwork for Future Ecologies presents a series of propositions and speculations ... radical practices for radical times.

544 pages, 13.8 x 21.5 cm, softcover, Onomatopee (Eindhoven).
