UOVO #14 (GREEN) JUNE 2007: Ecology, Luxury and Degradation – guest edited by Latitudes

UOVO 14 '(GREEN) Ecology, Luxury and Degradation' presents interviews, essays and projects around art practices that resist the spectacularisation or romanticisation of ecological issues or the natural world. Instead their practices explore the operational function and processes of ecosystems themselves, a capacity to comprehend connections and transgress disciplines and boundaries while addressing the uniformly conflicted future of the planet. In a world where one of the US government's recent senior environmental appointees (Allan Fitzsimmons) has been supporting his view for nearly a decade that ecosystems do not exist, such artistic provocations – with a keen understanding of the new post-environmental world – can only be valuable for our collective sanity.
