Nature Defending Itself: Entangling Art, Activism and Autonomous Zones
Mon 8 November 2021
How do we radically transform and entangle art, activism and everyday life in the midst of the horrors of the Capitalocene? Art activists Isabelle Fremeaux and Jay Jordan’s from the Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination present (with films, pictures and storytelling) their latest book that tells their version of the of the incredible tale of the zad (Zone à Défendre - Zone to Defend), their home since 2016 in Brittany. These 4000 acres of of wetlands, farmland and forest were due to be destroyed for a new international airport, but in 2018 after 40 years of struggle the infernal infrastructure was defeated through creative forms of direct action…but this was not the end of the adventure...
The book is published by Vagabonds/Pluto and the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest.
