Sacha Kagan. Art and Sustainability: Connecting Patterns for a Culture of Complexity. Bielefeld: transcript Verlag, 2011.

This book is the outcome of my PhD research over the past few years. It proposes an understanding of “culture(s) of sustainability”, “aesthetics of sustainability” and “art and sustainability”,  based on an in-depth theoretical elaboration and a critical review of 4 decades of ecological art. The book will be available in late July from the publisher (but it can be pre-ordered already now).

    • Thanks Cathy! I’m impatient to get the first copy in my hands – but there’s still a few months until July, with some page-layout work to do on the book before it goes for print 🙂
