Call for Papers: Art and Political Ecology

Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics


<mailto:submissions at seismopolite.com>submissions at seismopolite.com

The upcoming issue of Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics will 
discuss art's relationship with political ecology: What role does art 
have to play - if any - under the precariously situated human and 
environmental consequences of neoliberalism and its political 
geography? Which potentials can be found in locally situated artistic 
discourses and re-imaginations of political ecology, for influencing 
global discourses on climate change? How can the dialogue between 
culturally and historically different ecological imaginaries and 
eco-philosophical traditions be significant in an era marked by 
unprecedented threats to the environment?

Contributors from diverse disciplines are invited to submit essays, 
reviews or interviews that address the theme 'Art and Political 
Ecology', through a high variety of possible angles.

Topics may include, but are not restricted to:

-	Artistic strategies as forms of eco-activism.

-	Eco-activist, artistic platforms for cooperation.

-	Experimental formats of political ecology: artist/ research 
residencies, cross-disciplinary fieldwork.

-	Cooperative projects in political ecology between artists and 
researchers from diverse scientific fields.

-	Eco-poetics and eco-aesthetics, across all art forms.

-	Artistic eco-activism in response to restrictions to the 
freedom of expression.

-	Indigenous ecological imaginaries in art.

-	Ecopoetics and the political ecology of 'space' and 'place' in art.

-	Ecological imaginaries and eco-philosophical traditions in a 
cross-cultural and historical perspective.

-	Potentials and disadvantages related to the integration of 
eco-activism in the global contemporary art scene.

-	Critical artistic thinking on eco-aesthetics/ eco-activism in 
relation to neoliberal geopolitics.
