What can creativity achieve in an era of ecocide? Is it appropriate for creative and artistic practices to engage with the destruction of the biosphere? Is resistance and regeneration even possible in the face of escalating global environmental crises? Bringing together accounts of how artists and scholars are creatively responding to ecocide, this book re-evaluates the relationships between creativity, ecological crisis and political change. It highlights the growth of alternative approaches across the arts and within society, and then develops an original conception of creativity as an anti-ecocide endeavour by using examples from conventional art settings and daily life.
