Anthropocene and Anthroposophy in Contemporary Art from Central Asia
17 December 2015
The traditional relationship man-nature can be likened to patriarchal and colonial domination, whilst contemporary environmental philosophy to feminist and decolonial criticism. These relationships are particularly relevant for Central Asia, given that here environmental problems, gender inequality and post-colonial reactions are present in several different ways in the work of contemporary artists. The analysis of the peculiarities of the anthropocene of this region and how it is reflected in its art from the standpoint of object-oriented ontology can be further analyzed by expanding the range of the objects under scrutiny. As a result we can have an anthroposophic understanding of both local and global ecology.
