Vastbesloten Verlangens

LGC member Wendy Morris is participating in a new exhibition ‘Vastbesloten en Verlangend’ at De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam.

Determined and desiring, but also recalling and reaffirming, are reoccurring terms in the Maastricht Treaty, signed on 7 February 1992 by the then twelve European member states. The filmmakers refer to the historical facts that mark the beginning of the 20th century Europe, and shed their light on a contemporary quest: what remains today of the euphoria that the states then experienced in Maastricht and - above all - in Europe?

Against the Anthropocene - Visual Culture and Environment Today

Adressing the current upswing of attention in the sciences, arts, and humanities to the new proposal that we are in a human-driven epoch called the Anthropocene, T.J Demos critically surveys that thesis and points to its limitations. To democratize decisions about the world's near future, we urgently need to subject the Anthropocene thesis to critical scrutiny and develop creative alternatives in the present. This lecture is followed by a discussion between T.J. Demos and Jeroen Peeters.
