Nature, as both subject and object, has repeatedly been rejected and reclaimed by artists over the last half century. This anthology considers how the rise of transdisciplinary practices in the postwar era allowed for new kinds of artistic engagement with nature. With influential texts from diverse theoretical bases, this collection provides an overview of the eclectic scientific and philosophical sources that inform contemporary art's investigations of nature. Part of the acclaimed series of anthologies dedicated to major themes and ideas in contemporary art, edited by various scholars, artists, critics, or curators, this book is co-published by Whitechapel Gallery and MIT Press.
