In this course participants will explore the ways in which environmental concerns have informed visual art production over centuries. The course will trace understandings of environments, other species, and ‘nature’ itself as aesthetic and scientific concerns have progressed. Artistic responses to, entanglements within and challenges to ecological formations and the biosphere will all be discussed in detail across artistic media and disciplines. The course will consist of four sessions each centring on a different aspect of the relationship of art to the biosphere. Readings will include works by James Bridle, Rachel Kushner, Timothy Morton, Astridis Neimanis, Kathryn Yusoff, and others.
