Nature Art, Nature, and Ethics
Christiane Kruse & Antje Majewski (Eds.)
“Thinking about nature implies political thinking. The way we define our cosmos determines the way we live in it, the way we relate to others, to our environment, to agriculture and of course, to the way we make art.” Our current relationship to nature is the subject of this fascinating collection of artworks, conversations and essays by artists, scholars, teachers and students from China and Germany introduced by Berlin-based artist Antje Majewski. To better understand the connections between old Chinese philosophy, traditional Chinese painting and contemporary art practices, the texts introduce concepts more than 2,000 years old that raise relevant questions about our current relationship to nature—both to nature in the sense of environment and ecology, and to our inner nature and connection to the world we live in.
