This evening Rune Bosse’s exhibition The Trail or Time Between Trees is the setting around the Danish translation of the epochal work Ecology Without Nature by Timothy Morton, translated by Torsten Bøgh Thomsen and Jacob Bøggild and published by Forlaget Spring. The event will include an introduction to the book and a discussion between its two translators and cultural critic Lilian Munk Rösing. Since its first release in English Ecology Without Nature has only gained in relevance as global warming and related environmental problems has increasingly become a part of the political, scientific, and cultural agenda. The central idea of the book is a paradox: To think and act truly ecological we must give up our habitual thinking about nature. Morton draws on a number of thinkers from the Antique to today, new readings of Romantic writers such as Wordsworth, Coleridge, and Blake, as well as critical comments to environmental artworks within a wide range of art forms.
