Posted on behalf of the Rare Earth Catalog group:

The Rare Earth Catalog will present a collection of images and short texts that illuminate the racism, classicism and eco-cidal requirements of industrial-scale life. This collection will explore the latent social and political opportunities that are emerging in the anthropocene, an era of human-induced climate change that is in the process of reconfiguring all life on earth. The catalog will pull together examples of resistance and devastation, as well as tools aimed at challenging and transforming the status quo. We aim to generate a lucid and fearless accounting of the entangled elements constituting our precarious lives on this planet.

ecoartscotland is a resource focused on art and ecology for artists, curators, critics, commissioners as well as scientists and policy makers. It includes ecoartscotland papers, a mix of discussions of works by artists and critical theoretical texts, and serves as a curatorial platform.
