art of the anthropocene: a critical engagement     

funded by LSE and ESRC, artwork by Ngadi Smart

This new optional working group will offer LSE students across the university a chance to engage with some of the most pressing questions of our time. Through multimedia, interdisciplinary engagement, the course will draw insights from contemporary artistic practice to critically unravel the notion of the anthropocene and develop dynamic ways of engaging with our socio-ecological condition. 

The course will be centred around five overlapping tropes, which seek to provide stimulating entry points for exploring the contested worlds of the anthropocene:

planet-fossil-ocean-soil-kin

The course will be deeply collaborative, with participating students asked to research artistic work and share their findings in the bi-weekly sessions.

 

Artist talks will also be organised, fostering an exciting programme of exchange across the social sciences, arts and humanities.

Alongside discussion groups, the course will conclude with a collaborative art output to be displayed in the LSE Atrium and inaugurated at an opening event.

Ongoing outputs from the discussion groups will be shared via social media and blog posts through dedicated 'art of the anthropocene' platforms, extending both the reach and impact of the working group.
