Our friends from Valiz books and projects will soon publish ‘Sensing Earth’. Together with Pascal Gielen (Professor of Sociology at the University of Antwerp) and Georgia Nicolau (researcher and co-founder/director of non-profit civil-society organisation Instituto Procomum in Santos) our Head of Programmes, Philipp Dietachmair, is responsible for editing the book.
Sensing Earth states that our environmental issues are, in the first place, a matter of culture and aesthetics. Technology and science are not enough to solve these problems. The book includes essays, interviews, poetry, manifestos, choreographic prompts, speculative fiction, and case studies operating at the intersection of art and activism, culture and nature.
