With human pressure on the environment currently at its peak, what can we do to protect plant and animal biodiversity? Transform natural areas into sanctuaries? Pursue cohabitation? Favour radical political decisions? Or await the inevitable col-lapse? Over the past three decades, such urgent questionings have had a profound effect on the contemporary imagination, as much among artists as among thinkers and political decision-makers.
Over twenty multidisciplinary texts and artistic propositions – the fruit of a symposium hosted by the Institut Acte (Université Paris 1) and an exhibition at Mudam Luxembourg – here provide particular meaning to this burning set of problems, which no one can escape for they challenge our vision of a common future.
