Product Details

Praise

Boetzkes offers a broad and subtle discussion of sustainability, art, and plastic waste in a world governed by neoliberal capitalism. The book shows us how we might strip away that veneer and make a spectacle of the waste that constitutes its materiality. Whether through a quasi-ecstatic celebration of our intimate coexistence with waste, or through photographic autopsy of the bodies that died from ingesting our plastic, the works discussed in this volume expose the undeniable fact that plastic is everywhere.—The Literary Review of Canada

In her trenchant critique, she addresses the global trend of waste in visual culture, while surveying the implications on our collective value systems and the universal ecological condition.
