Contributors: Benedicte Ramade, Paul Roth, TJ Demos
Increasingly and forebodingly, artists are turning their attention to the subject of climate change, in poignant and often confrontational ways. The Edge of the Earth: Climate Change in Photography and Video features recent and historic work by a range of pioneering and visionary artists. Questioning traditional views and challenging our environmental consciousness, this in-depth publication and accompanying exhibition attempt to foster a reconsideration of climate change, envisioning the present crises and future consequences of humanity's harsh imprint on our planet.
