Foam Magazine #64: EXTREMES – The Environmental Issue
EXTREMES — The Environmental Issue looks at the complexities of today’s human-nature relationship through two different lenses. One half focuses on abundance and the other half, featured on the flip side of the magazine, on scarcity. Industrialisation, overpopulation, consumerism v scarcity, inequality, and the destruction of vital habitats: we address the divergences of the Anthropocene and how photography exposes them. We invite you to delve into this issue from both extremities, as a whole, while acknowledging that everything is interconnected. The magazine includes portfolios with compelling narratives of 16 remarkable artsts and a splendid array of essays by thinkers and practitioners alike. The essays in this issue dare to think of a liveable planet in the future. Wanda Nanibush, for instance, speaks about the notions of radical inclusivity and relationality from Indigenous cultures and the destruction of land caused by extractive economies. Meanwhile, interdisciplinary collective Planetary Portals nudge our vision into the future with their use of artificial intelligence as a tool to create new connections to decolonial futures. The feature section brings together an interview between Vince Aletti and Sunil Gupta, who shows us what a great storyteller he is — all enveloped with candid portraits taken by Charan Singh. Finally, we look at a thought-provoking shelf of books by Demet Y?ld?z Dincer and two catch-ups with previous Foam Talent alumni, Breno Rotatori and Sara Cwynar, featuring their brand-new works.
