art and posthumanism

A sustained engagement between contemporary art and philosophy relating to our place in, and responsibility to, the nonhuman world

Looking at biological and social systems, the question of the animal, and biopolitics, Cary Wolfe explores how contemporary art rivets our attention on the empirically thick, emotionally charged questions of “life” and the “living” amid ecological catastrophe. He shows how a posthumanist engagement with particular works and their conceptual underpinnings helps develop more potent ethical and political commitments.
