 - No man\'s land
Twenty multidisciplinary texts and artistic proposals to re-examine our relationship to the natural world.
At a time where human's pressure on environment reaches its extreme, what has to be done in order to preserve faunistic and floristic biodiversity? Do we have to transform natural lands into sanctuaries? Do we have to accept living together? Shall we use authority into politics? Or, at the opposite, shall we wait for collapse? These urgent questions have deeply changed nowadays imaginary, and that for thirty years. That phenomenon affecting inasmuch artists and thinkers, as politicians. More than twenty multidisciplinary textual contributions as artistic proposals feature in the present book. They originate both from a symposium organized by Université Paris-1 (Institut Acte), and from an exhibition at Mudam, Luxembourg. All of them carry a particular lightning to this burning problematic, a problematic which cannot let anyone indifferent because the matter here is our common future.
