The Centre for Culture and Ecology presents a talk by Gisela Heffes

Our next talk is hybrid (both online and in person). It is given by Gisela Heffes, who is currently a Bristol Benjamin Meaker Distinguished Visiting Professor. She will be giving a talk on 'The Necrospace of the Anthropocene: An Anachronistic Archive'.

"In this talk I propose that the geological stratifications of the Anthropocene form layers that can be read as archives. I will address a number of Latin American aesthetic figurations from a critical praxis that bolster an anthropogenic aesthetic/ethical proposal and that, through its conceptual flow, links them together with terrestrial, hydric and atmospheric layers. This gesture not only seeks to stress a formatted reading but also a form of analysis that is based on the erosion of a text and that therefore closes any possible layer of meaning."
