Aesthetics, Necropolitics and Environmental Struggle
Critical Art Ensemble
"With typical sangfroid, CAE dissects the beast of our own making: the
Anthropocene. Clarifying the philosophical roots of the Euro-American
confusion about nature, this text offers severe and essential medicine for
coming to terms with our ecological predicament."
Claire Pentecost, professor, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
"This book presents a perspective about the environmental crisis that I
suspected was there but couldn’t put my finger on. Follow these authors
deep into one of the biggest cultural lacunas of our day: necropolitics. is
book fully abandons solutionist bull in favor of a measured approach
grounded only in what we know. Read it, weep, and then kick ass. Once
again, CAE has blown my fucking mind."
Mike Bonanno, The Yes Men
"Aesthetics, Necropolitics, and Environmental Struggle takes a deep look at the
elephant in the Anthropocene. is book calls the bluff on the unacknowledged
relationship with death that has long haunted environmental
positions from the far left to the far right. Digging deep into the
philosophical underpinnings of the many anthro- and enviro-isms, CAE
returns with overlooked contradictions that have been historically and
strategically ignored. And despite its unflinching look at the politics of
death, the book remains approachable and highly readable, and it won’t
have you tightening a noose around your neck."
