Life Forms is an anthology, with contributions from both writers and artists, who discuss the ways we understand and describe, the artificial and the organic, art and landscape. Does contemporary art travel through and throughout apocalyptic, trashed and exploited landscape? Or does art create room for new utopias where it can contribute to the discovery of new life forms and new strategies for survival?
The Life Forms book was published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name at Bonniers Konsthall 16 Sep 2009 – 10 Jan 2010.
