River Ecologies: Contemporary Art and Environmental Humanities on the Danube
Edited by: Maja and Reuben Fowkes
Published by: Translocal Institute Budapest
ISBN: 978-963-12-2126-8

contents page

Challenging anthropocentric conventions that seek to harness the river for economic, cultural and political purposes, River Ecologies places the complex ecological materiality of the Danube at the centre of artistic and scholarly attention. Drawing on the insights of artists, scientists, anthropologists, writers and environmental historians, brought together in the experiential setting of the River School, this collective inquiry journeys to sites of urban and natural wilderness to explore issues of reciprocity, resilience, non-human agency and interspecies solidarity. From the confluence of contemporary art and environmental humanities, the artistic and theoretical reflections of River Ecologies flow through the critical habitats of Rewilding Mentalities, Avian Ethnographies, Environmental Histories and Biosphere Responsibility to reengage with the natural world.

Revolutionary Decadence
Edited by: Maja and Reuben Fowkes
Published: 2009
