In these strange and uncertain times, we are all looking for information. Search online for facts and you are guaranteed to feel overwhelmed, lost and distressed in no time. Too much divergent information, too many contradictory facts and opinions. Fake news spreads fast. The infodemic is enough to make your head spin. We believe that there is a huge need for context, reflection and contemplation. We have therefore asked eight curious thinkers, already involved in STRP projects, to write an essay about COVID-19 and Post-Anthropocene thinking.
From 2 April onwards we will publish two new essays every day on our website and social media. We welcome you to share these essays on every possible platform. We would love to hear your thoughts too, so please share them on our socials.
The writers of the STRP corona essays are: Philosopher and writer of Dark Ecology Timothy Morton, philosopher Pius Mosima, curator of the Van Abbemuseum Yolande Zola Zoli van der Heide & ‘climate justice creative’ and media consultant Suzanne Dhaliwal, archaeologist and ‘Dr. Space Junk’ Alice Gorman, Marshmallow Laser Feast designer Ersin Han Ersin, writers of Radical Botany Antonia Szabrezi & Natania Meeker, sociologist and writer Ruben Jacobs and artist duo and ACT award winners Leo Fidjeland & Linnea Våglund (Nonhuman Nonsense)
