Overview

Since the 1960s, the increasingly evident degradation of the planet has brought a new urgency to much new art and architecture. Radical Nature is the first publication to gather together artists from this period and onward, who have created utopian works and devised inspiring solutions for our planet. Radical Nature draws on ideas that have emerged from Land art, environmental activism, experimental architecture and utopian thought-ideas that propose a new "radical nature" to reconcile the earth's needs with those of humankind. Works by pioneering figures such as the architectural collective Ant Farm, visionary architect R. Buckminster Fuller and artists Joseph Beuys, Agnes Denes, Hans Haacke and Robert Smithson are presented alongside works by a younger generation including Simon Starling, Luke Fowler, Heather and Ivan Morison, R&Sie(n) and Philippe Rahm.
