Short note on making

(personal reminder)

“Culture is not a territory to be won or lost but a resource we are called to steward with care. Culture is a garden to be cultivated.”

Makoto Fujimura

‘Cultivating the garden?!’, ‘what antiquated nonsense’, you might say … ‘Isn’t it all supposed to be gender-race-political-eco-art these days?’

And of course: If these are the things that make you tick, if delving into contemporary art and the politics of ecology, if the intersection of art criticism, politico-ecological theory, environmental activism and postcolonial globalization is what makes you feel most alive — then do it. If discourses of eco-aesthetics in geopolitical areas really is your place, then go there!
