During the public program for The Coming World: Ecology as the New Politics 2030–2100, philosopher and interdisciplinary researcher Timothy Morton will give a talk about the relationship between ecology and economy.
Extreme right wing forms of nationalism are on the rise. But this is to do with ecology, not just with economics. The risk of fascist reactions to the ecological circumstances of today is evident, because as well as a fragile economy, humans around the earth are experiencing a fragile biosphere, to a large extent for the same reasons.
The numerous fascisms of today have one benefit: they allow us to reverse engineer very clearly the logic, ethics, and politics of accepting that ecology and economy go together. In this lecture Morton will outline what this might look like.
Morton’s visit coincides with the release of his book Being Ecological, published in Russian as part of the Museum’s joint publishing program with Ad Marginem.
This lecture has been organized with the support of SIBUR.
