Testimony as Environment: Violence, Aesthetics, Agency

nerea.pngNerea Calvillo will be giving a paper at the symposium Testimony as Environment: Violence, Aesthetics, Agency at the London School of Economics. 18-20 January

The paper will be on Visualising Pollution, Witnessing Slow Violence

Abstract

How can we make visible the slow violence produced by polluted environments? And what does this do? The paper suggests ‘environmental visualisations’ –visualisations of environmental conditions that configure material environments- as methods to intensify and expand the agents, tools and contexts witness air pollution, and therefore as forms of citizen engagement with it. In which contexts, if so, could they become devices for environmental politics?
